There are many different corn mazes and pumpkin patches in Calgary and they are all great choices this time of year. We’ve been to the Calgary Corn Maze, and we’ve hunted for pumpkins in the forest at Butterfield Acres, but our favourite is a visit to Blue Grass Nursery.
On the Thanksgiving Weekend each year Blue Grass Nursery has a big pumpkin fest. And I do mean big.
The inner mischievous teen in me loved watching the pumpkin dropped on a car. There were at least half a dozen pumpkins weighing at least 700 pounds, and the granddaddy of them all was hauled up 130 ft on a crane and then dropped on a Dodge Neon.
It was all in support of Children’s Hospital (the goal was to raise $30k) and the boys had a blast. In addition to the pumpkin drop they have hay rides, a Cinderella pumpkin coach, face painting, petting zoo, food trucks, playgrounds, and pumpkin carving all over their nursery in Balzac.
