Pumpkin Village Open at Discovery Park

The 2018 version of McDonald’s Pumpkin Village is now open at Discovery Park of America in Union City.  

This year McDonald’s Pumpkin Village features hundreds of pumpkins, gourds and hay structures displayed throughout the Settlement area of the park. McDonald’s Pumpkin Village is designed and created by the Discovery Park of America grounds crew, and a new addition this year is a giant hay bale maze designed as a children’s play area. 
Pumpkin Village kicks off a month that is full of activities and fun things to do at Discovery Park. With many area schools having Fall Break, the park is offering a $2 discount for student admission on Tuesday - Friday in October.  

A featured exhibit at the park is "Thomas and Friends Ride the Rails," featuring a giant Thomas and friend’s railway that inspires hours of free play for children ages 2 through 7.  Another special exhibit, "TOYS: 100 Years of Fun," is very nostalgic and interesting for kids of all ages. Admission for "TOYS" is included in the $5.00 featured exhibit price.

On October 13th, there’s a Family Education Series class called, “Vampires,” and on October 14th there’s Pumpkin Painting in the Settlement from 1:00 until 4:00 pm. This activity comes complete with pumpkins and all supplies and it is free with park admission. The children can take their pumpkin home with them.  

Closer to Halloween, children ages 12 and under who come to compete in the Halloween Costume Contest on October 29 will enjoy free admission to the park.  
CEO Jim Rippy said that he hopes people from near and far will enjoy the beautiful fall weather and fun events and activities at Discovery Park this October.  

“We especially want to invite our senior groups to come back out now that we have added trollies to help people get around the park,” he added.  

For a complete list of events, classes and activities at the park, you can visit the park’s website at www.discoveryparkofamerica.com and click on the calendar.  Discovery Park of America is open 10:00 am until 5:00 pm Tuesday through Sunday.
