Weekend Watch: Indoor/Outdoor Fall Fun

Filed Under:

Looks like Saturday will be chilly and wet, but Sunday will be a gorgeous (and dry) fall day. With that in mind, here's a pick for each day:

Saturday:
The fabulous Great Zucchini will be at the Arlington location of Tree Top Kids at 10:30 a.m., and it's free. He recently entertained the kiddos at my daughter's preschool to wild applause, so I highly recommend the experience! Best for ages 2-6.

Sunday:
Should be a perfect day to check out the Annual Pumpkin Festival at Butler's Orchard in Germantown, MD from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Little ones under age two get in free - all others are $9. In addition to shopping for your own pumpkin and farm-fresh veggies and fruits, the kids can also take a hayride, go down the big slide, jump around in the Hayloft, wander through the maze, take a pony ride, have their picture made with the funny pumpkin creatures, and enjoy fall foods & treats.

For more tips on pumpkin patches, fall orchards, and autumn festivals, see the "'Tis the Season" chapter at the back of my book. Also do not miss the excellent, comprehensive listings on the Our Kids website: 2006 Halloween Events, Pumpkin Patches & Fall Festivals, Apple Picking, and Farmer's Markets.
