Come to Noah's Ark Zoo Farm this October for a month full of smashing activities. For the first time ever we are having a Pumpkin Patch! There will be all sorts going on within the patch, including the opportunity to pick and carve Pumpkins, Pumpkin Skittles (with real pumpkins) and more! We will also be having a Pumpkin Fest Mystery Trail.
Pumpkin Fest Mystery Trail Saturday 5th October - Saturday 2nd November
Come along to take part in our Pumpkin Fest Mystery Trail. See if you can help us find the hidden Pumpkins on your way around the zoo and who hid them!
Pumpkin Patch and Carving Saturday 19th October - Saturday 2nd November
For the first time ever, you will be able to pick your very own pumpkin here at the zoo! Grab a wheelbarrow, wonder through the patch and pick as many pumpkins as you like. As well as picking your pumpkin, why not show off your artistic skills and carve it here as well? If you don't fancy picking a pumpkin there will be the opportunity to grab a seasonal hot drink and sit in our Autumnal Pumpkin Patch corner.
Pumpkin Sports Saturday 19th October - Saturday 2nd November
Throughout the day head over to our Pumpkin Bowling alley in front of the entrance to the maze. How many pins can you knock down with a Pumpkin?
Meet the Creepy Crawlies Monday 28th October - Friday 1st November
Want to do something different this half term? Come and meet some real life critters! Get up close to a range of bugs including Snails, Cockroaches and Stick Insects. Bug encounters will be at 11am in the Zoo Education Room between these dates.
Pumpkins for the Animals Saturday 26th October - Saturday 2nd November
Throughout the holiday our animals will also be getting involved. Did you know many of our animals including Elephants, Skunks, Capybaras and Giant Tortoises love to eat Pumpkins. Pumpkins also act as great enrichment items for our other animals as we can hide tasty treats inside. Explore the zoo each day to see which animals are being given some tasty Halloween treats.
After an exciting day of Pumpkin fun, take a break in our Food Barn for some tasty, spooktacular treats.
