    We love the Great Pumpkin Express. We’ve went twice. I just wish it wasn’t so expensive for a family of four. Once you get past the free age it’s harder to pay the price. My kids loved it!!! Great memories!

    Yes- we usually do maple lane farms!

    It’s a shame you have to be on Facebook to register to win this! Guess those if us not on social media will just have to pay full price.
