Blowing Springs Farm Fall Festival
Follow Tennessee Avenue into Flintstone, Georgia and you’ll eventually see billboards for the Blowing Springs Farm. This annual attraction which is hosted by Rock City is more exciting than your average “Old McDonald Farm.” Here, you’ll find a variety of fun family-friendly games and activities everyone is sure to enjoy.
Duck races, pumpkin carvings and the famous enchanted corn maze are just a few of the fun activities going on at the farm. Returning attractions include the cow train, hay ride, corn crib station, corn slingshot, and pumpkin painting. And if you find yourself peckish, you can enjoy a yummy treat of fried Oreos or boiled peanuts, along with other snacks.
There’s also new activities to enjoy like pedal carts, corn hole and brand new baby animals to love on in the new petting area. Get up close and personal with newest additions to Bagby’s Critter Corral. Goats, alpacas, miniature bulls and huge fluffy rabbits are all guests of honor in this tiny petting zoo that visitors can pet, play with, feed and even get photos with.
Every year the Enchanted Maze designs a new track to ensure every adventurer never takes the same path twice; and this year is no different. You can look forward to enjoying hours of fun “getting lost” with family and friends as you use the new pop culture text game to find your way out of the seemingly endless rows of corn.
The farm will be up and operating for a whole month from September 30th until October 30th every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 7 p,m. For more info on farm activities and operating times, go to blowingspringsfarm.com or call (706) 820-2531.
