Becker Farms, located at 3760 Quaker Rd., is ready to kick off its fall schedule of fun this weekend with the Labor Day Harvest Festival and continue right through the Thanksgiving season.
The festival season kicks off with the Labor Day Harvest Festival, Sunday and Monday, September 6-7, featuring U-pick apples, hayrides, pony rides, a chicken BBQ and music from Fiddle Stix and Scram Central. The Johnny AppleSeed Festival takes place Saturday and Sunday, September 12-13, and features more of the same – U-pick apples, hayrides, pony rides, a chicken BBQ and music from the Good Ole Boys.
The annual Pumpkin Fiesta takes place Saturdays and Sundays from September 19 through October 25. The Fiesta features live music every weekend, duck and goat races, hayrides, pony rides, big slides, hay bale jumps and farm animals. Kids and adult ticket pricing information can be found here. Throughout the Pumpkin Fiesta weekends, there will also be wine, beer, hard cider and dessert wine tastings for $5.
The Haunted Hayrides take place Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, October 16-18, October 23-25 and October 30 from 7 to 9 p.m. (weather permitting). The Castle Labyrinth maze leads you to the Haunted Hayride; if you survive, take a walk through Phylotec Biogenetic Testing Station and check out the terrifying man-eating monsters created during an experiment gone horribly wrong. Tickets are $9 – group rates are also available.
Becker Brewing Co. will be hosting a Thanksgiving Eve Party on Wednesday, November 25 from 7:30 p.m. to midnight – there will be live music from Dave Stockton and Pocket Change, plus locally brewed beers, estate wines and the new BBC Traditional Hard Cider.
