New for 2016, Bengston’s Pumpkin Fest is offering extended hours. From September 17th through October 30th, Bengston’s is open until 9PM Monday-Saturday and until 8PM on Sundays. This gives you and your family plenty of time to enjoy all the activities that are available.

Unlimited Rides

Bengston’s offers plenty of fun activities for the whole family, and this includes seven kiddie rides for young children. What makes this so special is that your child will be able to enjoy as much of these rides as he or she pleases, because they are unlimited.


Besides taking a hayride and going to pick your own pumpkin, Bengston’s offers plenty to do for the entire family. There’s a selfie booth, so everyone can take a selfie and remember their time spent at the Pumpkin Fest. The Mining Sluice brings you back to the Wild West where you can dig for gemstones. And don’t forget about the pony rides that your children can enjoy.

In addition, you can visit Kids Village and say hi to the fire chief and dog; see animals in the Fun Barn; enjoy a camel ride; see live animals at the petting zoo; use the pumpkin chucker to send your pumpkin flying into the air; watch a pig race; play in a corn box; milk pretend cows; ride on a honeybee ride; enjoy swings; take a ride down the mega slide; enjoy a train ride; and so much more.

Haunted Barn

For those who like a little scare (and who are 12 years old or older), take a trip into the haunted barn. The haunts are rated PG13, and everything inside is animated, so you can be sure your children will have fun. However, don’t let that take away from the fact that it can still give you thrills and chills as you make your way to the exit.
