Fall Activities to Check Out in 2020

September 17, 2020

You can feel it in the air - fall weather is here! As we start planning to return to sweater weather and gorgeous autumn days and evenings, our area is getting into the swing of things as well. Three amazing attractions are kicking into high gear this week. One favorite from Arthur is opening their new market, a regionally-famous farm known for unique animals and insane corn mazes is ready for challengers, and Champaign's most popular orchard is also opening their pumpkin patch. Throw on a flannel and let's talk about the fall activities you need to check out this weekend. 

Fall Activities in the greater champaign county area to Check Out This Weekend

We're going to start with a new market coming to Arthur's Great Pumpkin Patch. As always, be sure to like these attractions on social media to help support their hard work. 

Arthur's Great Pumpkin Patch opens their Cucurbit market

The Great Pumpkin Patch in Arthur opens their Cucurbit Market this weekend. Whether you’re decorating your front porch, whipping up a new recipe, or wanting the biggest Jack-o-lantern on the block, they'll have what you’re looking for. The Homestead Bakery on the farm is also open. You can find more guidelines about their COVID-19 precautions here. For a better look at what's in store for this season, check out Terri's video from the Great Pumpkin Patch we recorded earlier this week!

Hardy's Reindeer Ranch 

Everyone loves stopping at Hardy's Reindeer Ranch for fall fun on the farm. Other than the reindeer themselves, the most popular attraction is their corn maze. You may have tried corn mazes before, but nothing quite matches this larger than life challenge. If you're feeling brave, you can even take on the maze at night with flashlights! 

Curtis Orchard u-Pick Pumpkins are Back!

Hand-pick your very own pumpkin starting this Saturday at Curtis Orchard and Pumpkin Patch! Apple picking, their country store, and pumpkins sound like the perfect fall adventure. Be sure to grab some food at the Flying Monkey Cafe as well - their lunch specials are an amazing way to refuel before hitting the trees for apples or picking that perfect pumpkin.
