The Best of the Best Fall Festivals for Your Motorhome Rental Weekend
Your motorhome rental can be your “home away from home” as you explore fall festivals throughout the U.S. Here are three of the best fall festivals for your next motorhome rental weekend:
October 13, 14, 20, 21, 27, and 28, 2012
Hunsader Farm’s Pumpkin Festival is one of the best in southwest Florida. Held the last three weekends in October, the festival attracts people from all over the country. Admission is $8 per person, 12 years old and under free, and includes live music and shows, hayrides, petting zoo, pumpkin cannon, frog jumping championship and more. For an additional $2 fee, you can test your navigational skills in the corn maze.
Purchase fresh produce from the Hunsader Farmer’s market, or pick your own from fields of green beans, eggplant, okra, tomatoes, broccoli, cantaloupes, watermelons, and, of course, squash and pumpkins. Call the u-pick hotline to learn which vegetables are in season during your motorhome rental weekend. Also, be sure to visit the craft vendor area where you will find unique gifts that can give you a head start on your holiday shopping.
The Bradenton area is home to many RV parks for your motorhome rental.

The Farmstead Corn Maze & Pumpkin Festival, Meridian, ID: A Sure Bet for Your Motorhome Rental Weekend

Kids can take part in dozens of activities including a ride on the popular cow train, or cheer on the pigs as they race toward their cookie treats. Visitors can pick off the vine in the pumpkin patch or choose from already-picked pumpkins, gourds and Indian corn. Park your motorhome rental at the Boise Meridian RV Resort–the gateway to the Sawtooth Mountains.
The Farmstead festival has unique events you won’t want to miss:
- MAiZE Creations – Look no further for one of the best corn mazes in the country! The 18-acre maze has visitors guessing all the way, – clues are provided at twists and turns in scarecrow land. Visitors can even text for clues!
- Field of Screams – A portion of the corn field is transformed into a weekend night terror trip through the MAiZE creation. Not for the weak stomach!
- Pumpkin Poll – New this election year is the Farmstead Presidential Edition 2012 – Farmstead’s take on the straw poll! Cast your presidential vote for fun with your feet by choosing either the Obama or Romney corn maze. Vote online or at the Pumpkin Poll.
- Farmstead 5K Challenge or the Fun Run – Costumes are encouraged to fully embrace Halloween. The race course takes you through the twists and turns of the corn maze, over bales of straw and across the top of a large inflated jumping pillow. This one-day event is held on October 27 and is followed by an All-Idaho farm fresh breakfast. Register online or in person for the 5K Challenge on Team Romney, Team Obama, or Team Farmstead!
Autumn is a wonderful time to get away in a motorhome rental and enjoy the festivities of the season!
