This weekend is the last weekend for Lobenstein Pumpkin Fest! This one is my all time favorite! It is a family tradition for our family to visit Lobenstein Farm! We have been going there every year for as far back as I can remember! It is a very popular pumpkin farm with more than 30,000 visitors every year! It is located in Indiana, so it's a little bit of a drive for us, but we do it every year. Lobenstein Farm is located at 29703 Post 464 Road, St. Leon, Indiana 47012. For more info you can call (812) 576-3177. It is only 30 minutes from Cincinnati, and 30 minutes from Greensburg Indiana. Just 3 miles off of I-74. Just take I-74 West from Cincinnati, or east from Indianapolis to the St. Leon - Lawrenceburg exit and Follow the signs! Admission & parking is Free! Open the first three weekends in October. Oct. 4-5, Oct. 11-12, and October 18-19th. Enjoy a hayride to the pumpkin patch. You get to pick your own pumpkin! Also enjoy craft stands, farm animals, Corn & Hay maze, kids games, and face painting! And best of all-- Enjoy home cooked Country fried chicken, and homemade pumpkin pie! My favorite! Not good on my waistline-but I deserve a treat! Refreshments are from 10am to 7 pm! It's fun for all ages!
