Cedarwood Pumpkin Patch is heading down the home stretch of its 21st season and is as busy as ever.
“This season has been really good,” said Cedarwood Pumpkin Patch owner Luke Patterson. “The weather has been great pretty much every day this month and a lot of people are excited and ready to get out and enjoy fall. A lot of visitors local and from out of town are really enjoying it.”
It is hard to find a time when there is not a crowd at the Pumpkin Patch participating in the fun activities scattered around the farm. Some of the activities they have are: the jump pad, corn maze, giant hamster wheels, bouncy slides, two petting zoos, pedal cart, hay maze, pipe slides, and more. They have also added some new things this year.
“We added on to our restrooms and built a new restroom toward the back,” said Patterson. “We also expanded the activities area, built four new pavilions, and our new giant 100-foot slide. That seems to be the most loved of the many things we added. Definitely the most we have added in one season in a long time.”
This year, they were unable to have the annual hayride due to rising COVID-19 cases, but visitors are still able to leave with a pumpkin after paying for general admission.
Cedarwood Pumpkin Patch is one of the main sources of fall fun in Warren County each year. Patterson’s favorite part of this season is getting to watch everyone enjoy themselves.
“Our favorite part of it is getting to see families across the state come enjoy all our hard work and seeing all the kids and even adults enjoy themselves. We do a lot to ensure everyone has fun and has a good time and it means a lot that people continue to come back, or visit us for the first time,” he said.
The last day to visit is Halloween, Oct. 31. It’s located at 2900 Old Nashville Highway in the Centertown area.
