“I’m looking forward to seeing everyone at this great, family-friendly event marking the beginning of the fall season,” said Orland Park Mayor Keith Pekau.

The on-site activities include pony rides, horse-drawn wagon rides, barrel train car rides, a pumpkin patch, a haunted house, a maze, obstacle course, music, games, donut bobbing, a costume contest, a kids play zone and a petting zoo.  The event also includes a fire pit for marshmallow roasting. All activities at the Great Pumpkin Party are included in the ticket price.

Each costume contest participant will receive a giveaway prize and prizes will be awarded for best overall costume as well as for the most creative costume. Children must be between the ages of 1 to 9-years-old to enter. Not to be left out, leashed pets are welcome on site and can be part of the fun as they participate in the pet costume parade. To enter the costume contest, please meet at the candy guess tent at 10:30 a.m. for the morning session or 1:30 p.m. for the afternoon session.
