Special Discounts for Military, Police and Fire Personnel This Weekend As The Great Pumpkin Farm Kicks Off Its 23rd Annual Fall Festival
WNY Heroes and Mercy Flight to Participate in Armed Forces Weekend.
The Great Pumpkin Farm in Clarence, NY will kick off its 23rd annual Fall Festival this weekend: Saturday, September 15 and Sunday, September 16 from 10:00 a.m. to dusk with a special Armed Forces Weekend in collaboration with WNYHeroes, Inc. The regular admission fee will be waived for active duty and retired military, police or fire department personnel who present proper identification to WNY Heroes representatives at the gate; they will also be permitted to bring one guest for free.
MercyFlight, which provides emergency medical care via air and ground transportation, will be here with Beulah, the organization’s educational BO-105 helicopter. Festivalgoers can enjoy taking photos near Beulah and learn more about Mercy Flight’s lifesaving, non-profit mission (and maybe win a prize or two!) at the Mercy Flight booth.
As with every year at this annual fall attraction tradition, there’s something for everyone, including amusement rides; hayrides; cornmaze; the pumpkins and mum patch; pumpkin cannon; shooting gallery; homemade donuts, pies, cookies and pastries; Halloween decorations and special events, such as the World Pumpkin Pie Eating Contest, the Trebuchet Contest and Oinktoberfest, New York State’s BBQ Cook-off – and so much more!
