Hayrides, Pumpkin Patches, and Corn Mazes – Oh My!

Fall is finally upon us, and with cooler weather on the way, it’s time to make your fall fun bucket list. Whether you’re a fan of getting lost in a corn maze, scouting out the biggest pumpkin in the patch, or going for a hayride with your family, there are many opportunities to soak up seasonal fun around town.

Phillips Farms of Cary

Phillips Farms is open for the fall season, and this year is bigger and better than ever. Enjoy the family fun park or fall market on the weekends or stop by Busbee’s General Store during the week to pick up your favorite local goods. The corn maze is open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but if you want to get spooked, visit after dark and go to the haunted farm — if you dare!

Fall season has already started at Phillips Farms, and the pumpkin patch is expected to open the last week of September or the first weekend of October. General admission is $15 per person, or you can purchase a family four-pack for $55. The ticket includes everything, even admission to the sunflower field and the pumpkin patch, but haunted farm tickets are sold separately.
