Schnepf Farms Pumpkin and Chili Festival

My best friend Julie and I have not missed one year of Schnepf Farms' Pumpkin and Chili Party in Queen Creek, Arizona each year since 2010. It is a pilgrimage we love even more each year.

The event happens throughout October and it involves amusement park rides, after dark spookiness, two huge corn mazes, hay rides, petting zoo, foods of all kinds, bonfires, pumpkin patch, spooky train ride, face painting, musical shows, bike races, zip lines, well, the fun never ends!

It is an active farm too, so you can stroll along the gardens and the sunflowers. 

I like to hit the corn maze around sunset.

It turns from magical to spooky in minutes.
