Pumpkin Patch at Yukon’s Chisholm Trail Festival
Mark your calendar for the annual Chisholm Trail Festival, slotted for Saturday, October 16, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Mollie Spencer Farm, 1001 Garth Brooks Blvd. in Yukon. Admission is FREE!
NEW this year, the Maguire O’Hara Pumpkin Patch joins the festival. Kids visit with historical figures throughout the festival that take them back to the 1800s to earn wooden “nickels” and to learn about the Chisholm Trail. They may take their nickels the Pumpkin Patch to exchange for a free pumpkin! The Pumpkin Patch will open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
While you’re there, stick around for Pumpkin Chunkin’ demonstrations, where pumpkins are loaded into a cannon and shot across festival grounds! Prefer to test your skills? Pumpkin Bowling is also going on while the Pumpkin Patch is open.
The family-oriented event celebrates the western history of the famous Chisholm Trail. The festival is filled with living history re-enactors of the Old West, a variety food trucks, gunfights, craft booths, chuck wagons, and the ever-popular Kids Korral.
The Mollie Spencer Farm is located one half-mile north of Interstate 40, exit 136, which is Garth Brooks Blvd. Free parking is available on the north side of the festival property at Yukon Middle School. Cattle traveling along the Chisholm Trail regularly crossed the Mollie Spencer Farm, making it the perfect location to experience this step back in time!
