Senior Activity Center trip: pumpkin patch & pig races

French Prairie Gardens and Family Farm is a 500-acre paradise of amazing activities! Be prepared to have a wonderfully fun day watching some silly and squealingly exciting Pigtucky Derby Pig Races on Saturday, Oct. 12. Hosted by Farmer John and Farmer Eric, they will have you kicking back and laughing as their dough-nut trained pigs race around the track.

Other fun activities include the Sling Shot, and back by popular demand, the “Corn Cannon.” Be sure to check out the Corn Maze and Hay Maze.

See the farm on their Tractor Drawn Hay Wagon Rides. A trip to the farm in the fall would not be complete without the perfect pumpkin! Take a trip to the pumpkin patch to pick out the perfect pumpkin.

 The cost for this trip is $26.00. Times are: 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. To register for this fun trip, go online to: and click on the dark blue banner “Browse the catalog and register.” In the catalog you may view a listing of additional trips, hikes, events, classes, and educational presentations.
