The Best Way to Spend Your Day at The Great Pumpkin Fest

Valleyfair

Valleyfair is the Upper Midwest's largest amusement park, offering endless fun and thrills with world-class rides, attractions and live entertainment.

Trick or Treat Street – Although this may be the first place your kids run to, you might want to consider saving Trick-or-Treat Street for last (unless you're super hungry)! Keep your Best Day Ever going even after you’ve left the park by having a bag full of goodies to look through on the ride home. Bonus for parents - you won’t get stuck holding your kids treat bags all day! 

Spooktacular – Make sure to join Charlie Brown, Lucy, and Linus for a Halloween Spooktacular musical adventure! This is a great way to relax between activities or to wind down at the end of the day. Stick around to check out Sally’s Spooky Sing-A-Long, the Great Pumpkin Parade, and the Pirate Party for some more interactive fun on stage!

Peppermint Patty’s Haybale Maze – The haybale and cornstalk maze are a classic fall must-do. Cross this one off your list during your fun-filled day with the PEANUTS characters! And don’t worry – as much as you may zigzag your way through a twisting path, you will always find yourself back at The Great Pumpkin Fest.

Sally’s Craft Corner – This is another great way to wind down while also expressing your creative side. These Halloween arts and crafts will keep your little ones painting, coloring, and having a blast! No worries if your kid gets a little messy in the craft corner – you can always visit Pig Pen’s People Washer afterwards. It’s good clean fun for the little ones in our fun foam machine.

NEW Van Pelt Derby - It may seem like a race to fit all of this in to one day, but the only race here is the Van Pelt Derby!  Challenge friends or siblings to a race our haybale track.

Take time to enjoy all your favorite parts of the Great Pumpkin Fest and you’ll be sure to have a fun-filled family adventure.
