Want to know where we’re going each week so you can join us? We get invited to events, hear about fun exhibits and are interested in lots of different places all the time. Here’s what is on our radar this week. We can’t guarantee that we’ll go to all these places but there’s a good chance we’ll be at some of them. Support local arts or get outside and do something with us!

Sunflower and Floral Festival

Friday, October 18th, Chesterfield

Paradise Farms invites you to a visual harvest of acres and acres of sunflowers and a wide array of visual delights. Have a seat pond side, contemplate as you stroll through the labyrinth, have a seat in the expansive herb garden. The red zinnias of the sunburst garden are arrayed with the bright yellow sun rays projecting 400ft into the distance. Rest a moment alongside the pools of the art deco aqueduct. A replica of a structure in the Parc De Bagatelle in Paris France, the Orangery will grant a respite from your stroll, have a bite to eat from our cafe and just relax in our sunken garden. Don’t forget to pick up a bouquet or perhaps purchase our organic vegetables in the ticket booth lot. Open 9am-6pm. ticket booth closes at 5pm.

Electric Halloween Festival 2019

Friday and Saturday, October 18-19, Millville

Deep in the vineyard where no one can hear you scream….that is where you will find Electric Halloween, a camper’s paradise surrounded by a nostalgic energy of excitement, illuminated by the understanding that on this night you will be celebrated for your oddities, your creative passion, your true persona! On this night you will remember nothing but the screams of horror…. Or dare we say, fruitful memories with your loved ones!

Electric Halloween Festival and its attractions play host to an experience you will never forget. Here, you’ll have the opportunity to hear music you’ve never heard of and see live performance art you never thought was achievable! It’s the perfect chance to put on your masks, step out of your comfort zone, and experience that oh-so-tantalizing feeling of the night life we offer. Most importantly, we at Electric Halloween Festival believe “Mi casa es su casa,” so if you’re not too scared to stay the night, campers are welcome to fanatically decorate their campsites to their heart’s content. So with all that in mind, get ready to come home to Electric Halloween this October!
