Cox Farms Fall Festival Is One Festival You Don’t Want To Miss Taking Your Children To Visit
This is a true traditional fall festival favorite – there’s cider, fringe characters looking like aliens and trolls that the children will enjoy. Cox’s Farm Fall Festival is located on a 90-acre farm and has its gates open to the public for its fantastic extravaganza from September 24, 2011 until October 31, 2011, open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Location: 5621 Braddock Road, Centreville, Virginia
Cost: Weekday tickets are $9 per person for ages 2 and older, and week-end tickets $15 per person ages 2 and older (Saturday, Sunday and Columbus Day). Visit: www.coxfarms.com or call 703-830-4121.
Go out to Cox Farm and welcome in the fall fun with your children and enjoy the farm’s five giant slides – The Volcano, Six-Lane Dino, Cox’s Mountain, Barn Slide and Miner’s Mountain. Are you itching to jump on the giant rope swings like you did when you were young? You can swing through the air and land in a giant swath of hay for a good landing…remember those younger years?
Enjoy a 20-minute hayride to view the farm grounds, this gives you a look at all Cox’s has to offer the public. Visitors board two tractor-pulled trailers and plop down on a bed of hay in anticipation of the ride. Then, head out to the farm’s cornfield and weave, get lost, as you work your way through the CORNundrum maze. There’s funhouse mirrors, an abandoned school bus to explore and lots of strange creatures looming behind doors and windows.
You’ll have a chance to make the decision if you want to chug along a bumpy trail or take the harder and rougher trail. There’s plenty of entertainment regardless of the trail you decide to take.
Do take your children to Goat Village – visit and pet the goats…be sure to buy a cone full of goat food and watch the goats gather around to get their treat.
Food: Enjoy some apple cider on tap, bushels of complementary apples for a fast snack, and then, enjoy barbeque, pizza, cinnamon roasted almonds, kettle corn, and of course, soft drinks (both hot and cold). Hot chocolate, slices of pumpkin pie are also available. There are full pies available also.
Other Goodies: More type of pies, fruit butters, preserves, clover honey. Buy your favorite things to take home and to enjoy too.
Take Home A Pumpkin: Boxes of patch pumpkins wait at the festival exit, and each person is permitted to take one home with them.
