Northern Lights Tree Farm in Pleasant Hill, Oregon is well known for their Christmas trees…but that’s not all they have to offer! During the harvest season in October there is a great pumpkin patch, a giant corn maze and tons of family fun to be had during the Colonial Harvest Days Celebration!
Located just south of Eugene, this festival runs throughout the month of October. There are hayrides, spooky decorated barns for the kids to explore and a great farm store. On the weekends you can expect live music, vendors, a produce stand, pie eating contests and so much more!
The centerpiece of this festival is a giant hay structure for the kids to play on. Modeled after the Mayflower, they call this hay ship the ‘Hayflower.’ Kids can climb up top or run around below deck. There’s also a tractor to check out, beautiful dahlia and sunflower gardens to admire and lots of farm animals to visit!
There’s a spooky spider shack to explore as well as a barn decorated with bats, barn owls and skeletons (which is fun as well as surprisingly hands-on and educational!)
The price of admission includes access to the maze and all farm activities:
Adults (12+) $9.50
Children (4-11) $7.50
Ages 3 and under are FREE
