Description: Celebrating its sixth year, the Fall Harvest Festival offers fun-filled and educational activities for the entire family. The day begins with a Children's Harvest Fun Run around the Green Chimneys horse barn. The rest of the day is filled with great seasonal activities like the Pumpkin Roll, pumpkin decorating, hayrides, and a hay maze. Additional activities include the ever-popular bungee trampoline, pony rides, arts & crafts for kids, wildlife demonstrations, and other live animal events. Visitors are encouraged to explore Green Chimneys' renowned Farm & Wildlife Center, home to nearly 300 animals including unreleasable wildlife (eagles, hawks, owls), horses, camels, sheep, goats, pigs, llamas, and more. The students of Green Chimneys School have some special needs of their own, and through the rehabilitation and care of these animals they learn compassion, encouragement, and the true meaning of stewardship. Rain date: Sunday, September 30.
