AYLESFORD – The Dempsey Corner Orchards Pumpkin Festival was a hit.
The Aylesford-area farm was hopping with activity Oct. 21 as guests from near and far visited to take part in some fall fun. Pumpkin was the theme of the day and activities included: pumpkin picking, pumpkin painting, pumpkin desserts, pumpkin lunches and pumpkin smashing.
The petting zoo playground was packed with people and critters alike, and some lucky visitors were able to bottle-feed a goat or calf.
Guests were also invited to enjoy musical entertainment by Bob Deveau, play in the sound garden, try apple golf, purchase some tie-dyed t-shirts, decorate cookies and pick up some fresh produce.
