Rasmussen Farms’ famous Pumpkin Funland opens on Oct. 1.
From the first of October until Nov. 11, the Hood River farm is host to a unique world of characters crafted by the Rasmussen staff with creativity and humor from pumpkins, vegetables, squash, gourds and other items from the farm and greenhouse.
Families from throughout the region find touring Pumpkin Funland an unforgettable autumn experience. The display has earned a "must see" designation from Sunset Magazine, and has been listed on the nickjr.com website as one of the nation's top Halloween attractions.
This year’s theme “Children’s Literature” offers everyone the opportunity to become reaquainted with favorite stories and characters from beloved kid’s books. Winnie the Pooh will be there. Tigger, too! Travel to the mysterious island with Max, and discover “Where the Wild Things Are.” Learn about the adventures of “Curious George” in the big city. Share the wisdom imparted by the octopus to “The Rainbow Fish.” See what that “Cat in the Hat” is up to now!
Everyone loves a Corn Maze, and Rasmussen’s Corn Maze is known throughout the region for its tall stalks and gorgeous scenic setting. Getting "lost" in it is fun for all. The theme this year is “Wizard of Oz.” Find tableaus of Dorothy and Toto’s adventures in a strange land--and the friends and foes they encountered along the way--among the twists and turns of the elaborate maze.
Admission to Pumpkin Funland and the Corn Maze is free.
Sports lovers will find a fun activity at Rasmussen Farms--Pumpkin Bowling. No special shoes are required!
The Halloween season wouldn't be the Halloween season without a great pumpkin, and Rasmussen Farms has one of the best--and biggest--pumpkin patches around.
The pumpkin field is dotted with huge traditional sunflowers ready for cutting, too.
