Pumpkin & Ponies Festival 2015

 

 wwp3

 

Painted Oaks Academy is a Private Equestrian Boarding and Training Facility that offers many services all year long,  for both children and adults. But, in October we open our property to the public for the Pumpkin Patch.       I have see the same local families come every year and watch their kids grow larger each holiday, thank you for for stopping by and making  this event as fun as it now has become. Several people asked me how this whole thing got stated, so let me try and explain:

I have lived  in Orlando for many years but, I am originally from Wisconsin “Amish Country”.  Now that I have  two young boys of  my own I wanted to get out in October to visit a Pumpkin Patch here in Orlando. I  was very disappointment to find  the absence of any decent Pumpkin Patches or  Fall  Festivals for my family, only Gory, Headless tourist events.   October was always my favorite time of the year to get out and enjoy the cool weather.  So, about 6 Years ago we set up our own Pumpkin Patch here at Painted Oaks Ranch under the oak trees  for our kids, friends and family. It was enjoyed by everyone so much, that we decided open our ranch to the public every year in  October for our  Pumpkin Patch to have a place for local families,  like yours and mine, to come enjoy our facility and spend some precious family time with your kids picking out that “Perfect” Pumpkin.  Come make some memories and take a few pictures.  I will have my Restored 1925 Ford Model T Fire Chiefs Car this year available for Photographs along with some of the Winter Park Model T and Model A Car Clubs Cars comming out for this years event,,,   Ahh-OO-Ga!

The Pumpkins and Ponies are anxious and ready for your arrival.

Stop by and say “Hay”

We offer several exclusive Photo Spots with Hay Bales to sit on as not to damage the pumpkin crop for the other guests and children.  Please take notice that we will be resting and watering the Horses throughout the day, so please be patient in the event your ride is delayed. It is recommended you come on a not so busy day to ride the horses, the weekend Pumpkins and Ponies festival will be very busy and  will have a waiting line to ride.
