Fall is here, and the temperatures are just cool enough to enjoy time outside without the summer crowds. In other words, it’s a pretty good time to visit a theme park! At The Great Pumpkin Fest at King’s Dominion, you can enjoy rides and attractions along with special fall- and Halloween-themed activities. The Kings Dominion Great Pumpkin Fest is going on now through October 29, 2017, and there is much to love about it, including special live shows, games, crafts, and added attractions. Parents of young children will love that the park has a large section full of kiddie and family rides: Planet Snoopy. This section, with 20 rides, is the largest Peanuts-themed area in the world!
In a recent post, we highlighted 14 reasons to love The Great Pumpkin Fest, from special shows and trick-or-treating to a small petting zoo and crafts. Now we want our readers to enjoy this for themselves! We are giving away a fun prize pack to enjoy the park and remember your time there.
One grand-prize winner will receive two (2) general admission tickets for use any Saturday or Sunday until October 29, 2017, as well as a prize pack (please note that guests ages three (3) and up are required to have a ticket to the park). The prize pack consists of: a lightweight Kings Dominion drawstring backpack with a zippered front pocket, filled with an insulated Peanuts-themed tumbler (BPA-free), Snoopy “ears” headband, plush Snoopy with Woodstock, and a Hoberman expanding mini-sphere. One runner-up winner will receive an identical prize pack but no admission tickets. To enter this giveaway, see the instructions below.
Speaking of tickets, if you plan to enjoy the park next season, see the official website for a kids’ promotion. Right now, children ages 3-5 can enjoy unlimited free visits to the park and The Great Pumpkin Fest this fall with the registration and activation of a 2018 Pre-K Pass.
