Nearby Hill Ridge Farms is hosting their 50th anniversary Fall Harvest and Pumpkin Festival!

Located a mere 2.9 miles from Cedar Ridge at 703 Tarboro Road, join the fun at Hill Ridge Farms this season by enjoying a covered wagon hayride, pick a free pumpkin from the pumpkin patch, visit the farm animal corral, feed fish from the dock, take a trip down the 80′ giant slide, and relax at the picnic grounds. Plus there are train rides, gem stone panning, and duck races that guests may enjoy!

Live music and other special events are also planned throughout the season.

The festival is running now through November 4, 9 AM – 6:30 PM, with extended hours until 9 PM on Saturdays.
