Perhaps most popular is the exciting fall events! During Haunting Season, participants board the Edgy Hayride leading to the Pitch Black Corn Maze where they’ll be on your own to make it through the maze. Daytime activities include the opportunity to pick the perfect pumpkin or a bag of fresh apples, the corn maze and hayride, and the chance to browse the Ridgefield store for preserves, bread, cookies, and more goodies.

Disclaimer/Terms[26]: These opportunities are subject to last minute cancellations and changes that might not be reflected in this DullesMoms.com post. Please, always confirm by calling/clicking.
