This weekend (09/29/18) I attended the Cornelius Nursery Annual Pumpkin Fest. If you missed it this year, it’s definitely an event you should consider taking your kids to next year!
Travel Tip #15: Go Earlier in the Day
This tip is great for multiple reasons:
- The earlier you go, the less picked through the selection! But they have a ton, so I wouldn’t worry about them selling out.
- I arrived at 10 a.m. and it wasn’t super busy yet, but by the time I left around 11:30 a.m., there were lines for everything!
- It’s usually still hot in Texas at the end of September and beginning of October. And being in Houston, it’s really humid and likely to have been raining! Go early in the day to avoid some of the heat of the day.
This year for the kids, they had games, pie pumpkin decorating, face painting and pansy flower potting. Additionally, though I didn’t stay to see it they had, “performances by family favorite, Mad Science” and costume characters. They also offered fresh popcorn (which wasn’t too buttery), gift card giveaways (I didn’t win) and a photo booth setup. I have a terrible picture of the photo booth area, but as you can see, you must provide your own camera.
Cornelius Nursery Pumpkin Decorating Workshop
They also had two pumpkin decorating workshops, one at 10 a.m. and the other at 2 p.m. This would be a great mother, daughter event and there were two sets of just that in the workshop I attended. This was the only part of the event that was not free and was $50 and included all supplies for a fall pumpkin centerpiece!
