USA Today Travel just named Pumpkin Hollow near Piggott “one of the country’s coolest pumpkin patches.” Only 15 of the fall attractions were named by the publication, which means it was quite an honor to be included on the list.
Here’s what USA Today had to say about Pumpkin Hollow:
“As a top commercial gourd grower in the South, Pumpkin Hollow is an ideal destination for families who love to celebrate the fall.
With hayrides, pedal tractors, pony rides and a barrel train, this farm was created for seasonal kid-friendly fun, complete with a pumpkin patch and a “friendly forest.” And those seeking a good scare won’t be disappointed… the farm’s “Horror in the Hollow” adds some spooky attractions when the sun sets.” Congratulations to everyone at Pumpkin Hollow, especially Ellen and Darrell Dalton, who have worked tirelessly for over 20 years to make the attraction what it is today.
They are currently celebrating the 22nd annual Pumpkin Hollow Pumpkin Patch through Oct. 31. It’s a great spot for families to spend a beautiful autumn day, with fun activities such as the corn mazes, hayrides, catfish feeding, pony rides, the infamous pig scrambles, farm animals, Kids’ Barn, and Pond Slide. Shop for pumpkins of all sizes, shapes, and colors, mums, cornstalks, gourds, & t-shirts/souvenirs.
Try the homemade pumpkin roll…made from pumpkins grown on-site. You won’t regret it!
But on Friday and Saturday nights, things get spooky with the haunted attractions! If you LIKE being scared, really scared, that’s where you need to be! Because as the sun goes down…things get darker, literally and figuratively!
The goblins, ghouls and ghosts that call Pumpkin Hollow home awaken…and come after you!!
If you enjoy being scared…and I know some of you DO…you need to experience Horror at the Hollow! You can get your fill of scare each Friday and Saturday night through Nov. 1.
Forest of Fright
There’s the Forest of Fright…full of “unsavory characters wandering the paths, watching, waiting…patiently waiting for their victims to arrive.” At the Frightmare Farmhouse, paranormal activities abound in the house once used by a mortician. Locals have reported hearing strange noises in the house, which is chained to keep people out…or keep the undead in! And, of course, no one can forget Bubba’s Butcher Barn.
I’ve been through the barn, in the daylight, and it STILL gave me chills! At night, Bubba wakes up and is looking for “fresh meat!”
Bubba is mad because so many escaped his “barn of horrors” last year…and he’s determined NOT to let that happen this year!
