Foods, Drinks, Crafts…and Lots of Fall-Like Things to Fill Your Day.
Fresh from the farm…and from one of finest farms around..the Sperdute Farm family of New Castle will be here offering a full array of products made from their very own produce. In season, the family raises an abundance of sweet corn, tomatoes, and other vegetables including a wide variety of peppers, eggplants, cucumbers, zucchini, pumpkins, watermelons, cantaloupes, butternut and acorn squash, Indian corn, and gourds.
The Sperdute pumpkin patch spans 25 acres and all of the give-away pumpkins at the festival were supplied by them…and you’ll have the opportunity to buy decorative and pie pumpkins, along with a vibrant mix of gourds, and jars of tasty jams and spreads spicy, savory and seasonal.

Kool Kids Stuff Too!
We didn’t forget the kids…family fun is what we’re all about and while we’re sure the little ones will be overwhelmed at seeing what will likely be their first giant pumpkin ever, we’ve got some specific activities to satisfy their size as well…
- KIDS “PEDAL TRACTOR PULL”…all NEW this year!…for tykes 3-to 8 years-old, the fun is endless the fascination on your child’s face priceless. Watch as each child pedals a replica farm tractor while dragging a weighted sled behind them. Dragging creates friction, so the farther one pedals, the harder it gets…but the fun is in the experience…and the small prize each child receives for their effort
- PUMPKIN DECORATING STATION…take the soccer-ball sized pumpkin provided by our Baierl “Pumpkin in a Pick-Up” patch giveaway right to our creative crew near the info tent and let your child paint it to their liking and style
- GIANT PUMPKIN PIÑATA…we drop a 1,500 pound pumpkin filled with candy and other prizes that’s perched 60-feet high in the air…once it hits the ground, it’s a free-for-all scatter to grab the gifts
