Harvest Festival at Remlinger Farms
Remlinger Farms opens their gates on Sept. 30 for a full month of old-fashioned harvest entertainment. In addition to the Farm Market Fall Specials, the Gift and Craft Shops, the Farm Restaurant and the U-Pick pumpkin fields, the Northwest's largest Fall Harvest Festival is open every weekend in October from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Festival admission is $9 for children under 12 years, $8 for adults 12 years and older, and $7 for disabled and seniors 60 years and over.
Festival admission provides a full day of old fashioned fun. There will be hay mazes, giant hay jumps, hay pyramids to climb, and a corn maze to hunt for a pumpkin - find your pumpkins in the maze and purchase them for only 10 cents per pound (with paid festival admission). There will be over 20 rides and attractions available at the festival including the new Flying Pumpkin ride and Mine Twister roller coaster.
For the first time this year the farm will open the festival gates Monday through Friday from 3-6 p.m. for a mini festival beginning Monday, Oct. 10. Admission is only $5.00 per person.
O n Sunday, Oct. 1, festival guests can attend a concert featuring the Kingsmen - the 1960s group of Louie Louie fame - Los Orchids with The Valley Girrrls, and the Tolt Middle School band.
Proceeds from the concert will help raise money for the Carnation Fourth of July Committee, the PTSA, Sno Valley Senior Center, Tolt Band, Tolt Multi Age program, and the Parade program.
With paid festival admission, the concert is only an additional $7 dollars for adults and $2 for seniors. Children under 12 are free with paid adult concert ticket. Festival guests need not purchase concert tickets.
And if you are looking for extra cash for the holidays, but don't want a real job - just a few hours in the evenings or on weekends, call Remlinger Farms at 425-333-4135 ext. 100 to join the "Festival Fun Team."
