Event description

Description

Get ready to learn about the very first Thanksgiving through interactive, hands on exploration at Piney Acres Farm!! This very special event will take place on Thursday, November 2nd, Friday, November 3rd and Monday, November 6th at 9am and again at 11am. Price is $8/child (ages 4 & up), $5/parent and children under 4, infants are free.

We will take a guided hayride through the tree fields and over to our Indian corn field & pie pumpkin patch, where kiddos will pick their very own pie pumpkin or gourd AND Indian corn. History will unfold as we discuss how the first Thanksgiving came to be (kid-friendly version, of course). We'll learn to shuck corn, feed our barnyard babies, enjoy a couple of menu items from the first feast and talk about Thanksgiving traditions that hold true today.

Then we'll head over to the Gem Mine and mine for different minerals that Native Americans used for survival, from cooking to building and weapons. All treasure that is found will be sent home with the little ones who found it :)

We'll wrap up the day with a picnic lunch (outside food & drink IS permitted for this event) as well as free play in our Play & Explore Area and Kid's Corn Maze. There is no "end" time for this event, however the guided part of the tour will end at 2pm.

*Raindates for this event will be on Wednesday, November 8th, Thursday, Nov. 9th, Friday, November 10th at 11:30am & 2pm*
