Magic Pumpkin Coach & Snap the Dragon
Pick your mode of transportation and take a ride around our farm—choose from the Pumpkin Coach or Snap the Dragon!
Have a grand time panning for farmer’s gold, going to jail, hanging your hat in the saloon and then stop to rob the bank — in any order you prefer.
Make Your Own Scarecrow
We supply the hay and little items to create the body — just bring some old clothes, crazy hats or whatever else your imagination and back of your closets can conjure up.
Play in the Hay!
Kids can climb all around in it and go crazy. They can even try to find the “needle” in the hay stack!
Come, sit around the table and paint your pumpkin how you please — scary face, happy face, no face but a pretty fall scene. You’re limited only by your imagination (and your artistic ability).
Charlie Brown’s Pumpkin Patch
Take your picture with Charlie Brown and his friends as you stroll through the patch to find that perfect pumpkin.
Ride the Witch Broom
Another great photo opportunity for the little ones.

−Ramblin’ Jack Elliott in concert @ Common Fence Point Community Hall8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Common Fence Music welcomes folk legend Ramblin’ Jack Elliott to the gold lamé stage. Jack’s ramblin’ ways began at the age of 14, when he ran away from his Brooklyn home to join the rodeo and learned to play guitar from a cowboy. One of the last true links to the great folk traditions and with over 40 albums under his belt, artists such as Johnny Cash, Tom Waits, Beck, Bonnie Raitt, Ry Cooder, Bruce Springsteen, the Grateful Dead and The Rolling Stones have all paid homage to him. In the tradition of roving troubadours, Elliott has carried the seeds and pollens of story and song for decades from one place to another — timeless songs that outlast whatever current musical fashion strikes today’s fancy. Don’t forget your picnic basket.+8:00 pmRamblin’ Jack Elliott in concert @ Common Fence Point Community Hall

−Screening of “Meet Me in St. Louis” @ Barrington Public Library1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
One of Judy Garland’s best-loved movies, “Meet Me in St. Louis (1944),” is next up in librarian Doug Swiszcz’s film lecture series, “Gotta Sing! Gotta Dance!: The Evolution of Movie Musicals.” Filmed in glorious Technicolor, the film is director Vincente Minnelli’s beautifully realized evocation of homespun life in America at the turn of the 20th century. Episodic in nature, the story follows one St. Louis family through the changes of the seasons as the 1904 World’s Fair approaches. The ensemble cast includes child star Margaret O’Brien, and the Hugh Martin-Ralph Blane score features memorable songs like “The Boy Next Door,” “The Trolley Song,” and “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.” The series continues with “Singin’ in the Rain” (Oct. 17), “Fiddler on the Roof” (Oct. 24) and “Chicago” (Oct. 31).+1:00 pmScreening of “Meet Me in St. Louis” @ Barrington Public Library
