Have a fang-tastic time at Pumpkinville!!
Posted on Friday October 12, 2012
Ajax residents, visitors and ghoulish guests are invited to attend Pumpkinville at Greenwood Conservation Area on Saturday, Oct. 20, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free.
This year’s featured entertainment is Shrek – Stompin’ the Swamp, a 25-minute interactive song and dance performance featuring familiar hit songs. Performances take place at noon, 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. After the show, enjoy a meet and greet with Shrek and Fiona.
Back this year is the popular Pumpkinville Express – a free shuttle service to and from the park. The shuttle leaves every 10 minutes along two routes from Ajax GO Station (Westney Rd.) and Notre Dame Catholic Secondary School (1375 Harwood Ave. N.). Pumpkinville Express provides direct access in and out of the park, by-passing all traffic. Also, shuttle riders get a chance to win a Town of Ajax prize pack. A note to drivers: parking is very limited and not guaranteed. Cars will enter and exit along the same route and drivers should be prepared for lengthy wait times.
Returning favourites include a haunted house, spooky science experiments, horse-drawn wagon rides, Mini Kids Zone hosted by Bell, inflatable rides, petting zoo, pumpkin patch, and a pumpkin carving contest sponsored in part by Ajax Mazda. Nominal fees apply for some attractions as well as food and drinks. Bank machines are not available on site.
Pumpkinville is sponsored by Bell and Ajax Mazda.
