One of my favorite Fall festivals is right around the corner! The Sturgeon County Bounty held at the Prairie Gardens Haunted Pumpkin Festival starts next weekend and my family can’t wait to attend!
This year we have rigged up something special together, head on over to this post to win a family admission and Taste Tickets for the event!
The official press release has been sent out, but I didn’t need it.
We literally count down to this day.
We love the Haunted Pumpkin Festival at Prairie Gardens.
I adore the food at the Sturgeon County Bounty. I almost don’t want to let people know about it, since it’s not incredibly busy (yet) , no huge line ups, gorgeous, yummy local food to be eaten at a reasonable price and enjoyed in the crisp fall air….
I can’t wait for the 29th! The pumpkin soup was my favorite from last year, the pumpkin pie that Tam Andersen of Prairie Gardens bakes is literally my husbands favorite in the world and the kids loved all the treats!
Have a read at the amazing things going on September 29th!
Real food. Real local.
