One of my favourite fall events is coming up soon! It’s Pumpkinville time in Ajax. I have been attending Pumpkinville for the past 3 years now and it is something I look forward to every year. And who wouldn’t? At Pumpkinville you can enjoy jumpy castles, a petting zoo, a haunted house, smores, a magic show, face painting and a whole lot more.  It’s a free event and fun for the whole family. Here’s the info. you need to know:

Saturday, October 14, 2017 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Greenwood Conservation Area

Free admission! This fall event has been a community favourite for years. Activities include horse-drawn wagon rides, No Frill’s Pumpkin Patch, inflatable rides, Ajax Mazda Haunted House, face painting, children’s activities, live entertainment, interactive experiences and more. Parking is very limited and not guaranteed. Cars enter and exit along the same route, so those who choose to drive must be prepared to encounter lengthy wait times getting into and out of the park. Guests are encouraged to take the “Pumpkinville Express” – a free shuttle bus service with a direct route to all the thrills, chills and spooky fun. Nominal fees apply for food and beverages. Please note: bank machines are available on site.
