PLATTSBURGH — On Saturday, Oct. 26, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Country Dreams will host their first ever “aMAZEing halloWINE” festival.

Country Dreams Farm, opened in 1993, is a working farm specializing in fall and winter fun for the whole family. Celebrating the spirit of Halloween, visitors of all ages are encouraged to come dressed in costume to enjoy all of the festivities including wine tasting in the corn maze from 5 to 9 p.m. (must be 21 or older), a family friendly corn maze from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., a costume contest for adults and children, Gordie Little telling ghost stories at dark around the bonfire with S ‘mores, the Old Country Grass Band from 2 to 5 p.m., a barbecue chicken dinner, a farmers market, a petting zoo and goat mountain, a crooked corn house and kids play area, and pumpkin picking in the pumpkin patch.

Tickets for the event are $15 per person, which includes entry to the corn maze, wine tastings and the barbecue chicken dinner. Tickets can be purchased at Country Dreams Farm in advance or the day of the event.

For more information, call 561-8941, visit countrydreamsfarm.com or log onto Facebook.com/CountryDreamsFarm.

Also, a Pink Pumpkin Patch will be held at the farm in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Country Dreams Farm has teamed up with the Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation to aid in the fight against breast cancer. For every pink pumpkin sold, Country Dreams Farm will give a percentage of proceeds to organizations involved in breast cancer research.

Visitors to Country Dreams Farm can now take home these pink pumpkins and help spread the word by placing them on their porch this fall.

Country Dreams Farm, located at 260 Pellerin Road in Plattsburgh, is a working farm using horses for much of their “horse power.” It offers farm tours, winter sleigh rides, wagon and carriage rides and a fall corn maze and pumpkin patch.
