P is for pumpkins!
Ahhhhh …. fall. Cooler temperatures, shorter days and pumpkins everywhere! If you haven’t had a chance to get your own pumpkin or have some fall fun, it’s not too late. Here are three great places to visit in Arkansas’s Upper Delta.
For 30 years, Pumpkin Hollow near Piggott has been offering fall family fun for all ages. This year is no exception. Visitors will find a zip line, hayrides, pony rides and more, as well as the scariest haunted attractions in the tri-state area. And do NOT miss the sweet treats made from items grown at Pumpkin Hollow, like their famous pumpkin rolls. Not only can you get the perfect pumpkin, you'll also find a variety of fall decorations for the home. To learn more visit www.PumpkinHollow.com.

Jackson Farm in Black Rock is one of the Arkansas Delta’s newer fall attractions. The farm is marking its fifth season during 2022. The Jackson Farm Fall Festival takes place each weekend from September 24-October 31. The festival offers fun for the entire family, like fun in the corn maze, hayrides, pony rides, a petting zoo, a giant hay slide, rides on the “cow train,” pig races, a pumpkin patch and so much more. There’s so much new to do at Jackson Farm, you really need to visit their website at visitjacksonfarm.com.
Near Augusta, you’ll find Peebles Farm and Corn Maze. Opened to the public in 2005, the farm has become a regional favorite for families for outdoor fall fun. It’s a great place to go pick your own pumpkin, with 65 acres of pumpkins so you can find the PERFECT one. Explore the 16-acre, hand-cut sunflower-themed corn maze (during Friday and Saturday nights in October, the maze becomes “haunted"). Take a scenic wagon ride or do some “flying” on the zipline. Try your luck at the corn cannon or check out the duck races. Let the kids greet the animals in the barnyard then head to the playground for some more fun. And don’t miss the “hamster wheel” races! There's also a pea gravel pit, a tractor tire “serpent,” tunnels, swing slides, a pumpkin house and horse rides. Don’t forget to stop by the General Store, featuring a large variety of locally made items including jams and jellies, homemade candy, homemade soap and more.
