2012 Pumpkin Festival at Hunsader Farm

Hundsader FarmsIf you moved to Florida from the North you sure know what it is like to experience a real northern Fall Season ─ The crisp cool air and leaves on the trees changing into brilliant yellow, oranges and red colors. Although there are many advantages to living in Florida, this time of year it is sometimes difficult to get into the Fall Spirit. However, Hunsader Farms does an excellent job changing all that with their annual Pumpkin Festival.

This year the Hundsader Farms Pumpkin Festival is being held on October 13-14, 20-21, 27-28, 2012 from 9am-5pm. Admission is just $8 and children 12 and under are free. Parking is $5.

There will be 100+ crafts booths, hayrides, live shows, live music, petting zoo, jugglers, barn yard playground, scarecrow display, frog jumping championship, chainsaw sculpture and pioneer trades village, and much, much more…

Make it a yearly tradition…hope to see you there…

Hunsader Farm is located at 5500 CS 675, Bradenton, FL 34211

twisted woods bradentonYour heart is pounding inside your chest, panic creeps up from your gut, and you’re so frightened you want to scream. You stalk forward cautiously, and suddenly something so eerie pops out of nowhere.  You practically jump out of your skin and let out an ear-splitting howl!

Where are you?

You’re at Bradenton’s Twisted Terror Haunted Trail of course! It’s morphed family fun with psychological torture and super scares.  It’s imaginative with creatures darting out at you and realistic terrifying props located in the least likely of places.

The Fish Hole on Lakewood Ranch Main Street

Fish Hole Lakewood RanchOne of the great things about Lakewood Ranch is that it so family oriented. While Lakewood Ranch Main Street may be known for its shopping and dining it is also a lot fun for the whole family. One place that is sure to get you family “hooked” on Lakewood Ranch is the Fish Hole, a mini golf course located on Main Street.

Don’t worry about the heat… The Fish Hole is a perfect place to play and stay cool as it was designed with misters around the edges to keep the players refreshed and plenty of shady areas around the 18-hole course to take cover including overhangs that resemble covered bridges. As you golf you can relax in a setting that is well kept and surrounded by 50 different species of plants, a moving water wheel and a 3,000 gallon pond filled with brightly colored Koi fish. The kids can get fish food from the feeders to keep themselves busy between holes. But no fishing at the Fish Hole only mini golf!Fish Hole Lakewood Ranch

The hole in one shots are attainable at the Fish Hole ─ even the little ones can do it, but each hole does have its own unique challenges that you will love to “tackle.”  —The pun was intended.

At the end of your mini golf experience drop your ball into a drop box for a random chance to win another free round!

Check out their website for a variety of birthday packages and also a $1.00 off coupon to print out or show on your phone.

Labor Day Weekend in the Sarasota Area

Labor Day in SarasotaWhat to do Labor Day Weekend in Sarasota?

Labor Day was originally organized back in 1882 to celebrate the American workforce and the contributions it has made to the United States economy. Over the years many people mark Labor Day as the end of the summer season and a great excuse to travel or play outdoors. The Manatee, Sarasota and surrounding areas have plenty to offer this upcoming Labor Day weekend. Here are a few highlights:

Downtown Venice Craft Festival – On Sept 1st and 2nd, walk down Miami Avenue and meet some of the nation’s finest artists while appreciating or even purchasing their displayed work at the 4th annual downtown Venice Labor Day Weekend Craft Festival. It’s starts at 10am and ends at 5pm. Admission is free. Come see a variety of crafts that will amaze you- stained glass, handmade jewelry, paintings, photography, personalized products for your kids and even your pets, and much more. Come with an appetite too. Freshly made kettle corn will be available.

Marauders – Two final home games will be held on Labor Day weekend: Saturday and Sunday at McKechnie Field. On Saturday experience Tobacco Free Florida when the Marauders will go tobacco-free inside the park and educate kids on the dangers of tobacco use. Afterwards stick around for fireworks presented by Gold Coast Eagle Distributing immediately following the 6:30pm game. Or come early to Sunday’s game (10am) and plan on baseball-breakfast combo special with $1 tickets and $5.00 for all you can eat pancakes and sausage breakfast!

56th Annual Englewood Pioneer Days Parade This year’s theme: “Hats Off To Englewood!”  The parade will be held on Monday, September 3, starting at 9 am.

The Michael O’Donnell Memorial Fishing Derby will be held that weekend as well. Englewood is approximately one hour north of the Sarasota/Manatee area.
