Young’s Fall Farm Festival ~ FEATURED EVENT
If you don’t mind a little drive through the country, come check out the annual Fall Farm Festival at Young’s Dairy this weekend. I grew up coming to Young’s, back when it was just ice cream and a petting zoo. This weekend you’ll find that and so much more! The festival of fun runs Saturday and Sunday from 11-6, with many of their attractions running beyond that. See “Humongus Gus” along with pumpkin everything. If it’s fun on the farm they’ve got it!
