Lombardi Ranch
It’s time to choose carefully your pumpkins as Lombardi Ranch brings the spirit of Autumn and Halloween again this weekend.  In fact, Lombardi Ranch is celebrating their 45th Anniversary.  The features of this weekend are the scarecrow and pumpkin carving contests.  Every weekend from now to Halloween will include live musical entertainment, train and wagon rides, corn maze, petting zoo and bake sales.  Many of us have memories of our children playing in the giant pumpkin and receiving a Lombardi Ranch balloon, sticker and piece of candy.   Lombardi has fields and fields of pumpkins for sale, as well as a wide variety of season vegetables.  Hearten your spirit by singing the Lombardi Ranch song with song composer and performer, David Reeves Carpenter.  Lombardi hours are:  Monday through Saturday 9am-6pm and Sundays from 9:00am-5pm.
