The Great Pumpkin Fest at California’s Great America opens September 30 and runs Saturdays and Sundays through October 29 (closed October 22). The festival is a non-scary daytime event for the entire family and has become a Bay Area tradition for the extended Halloween season.
Guests 12 and younger can race through a hay maze, decorate mini pumpkins to take home as souvenirs, color PEANUTS™ pictures and dance in a foam pit.
They will also enjoy wearing their costumes and Trick-or-Treating with the PEANUTS™ gang. The Great Pumpkin Fest activities take place from Noon-4 pm, while the entire park is open from 10am-5:30pm for daytime fun.
The beloved movie “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” will continuously show in Planet Snoopy; additionally, the park will present book readings of the PEANUTS tale.
Every activity for The Great Pumpkin Fest takes place inside Great America’s Planet Snoopy kids area, where 14 rides designed for younger children add to the excitement. All Great Pumpkin Fest activities are included with admission.
