GMW: Cox Farms Fall Festival
If this week’s cool weather hasn’t put you in an Autumn-kinda-mood, then Friday’s Good Morning Washington is sure to do the trick!ABC7’s Adam Caskey was live at Cox Farms for a preview of its awesomely fun Fall Festival.
Hayrides, music and pumpkins at every turn. And we can’t forget about the kettle corn and apple cider. Is there any better way to celebrate Autumn?
Fun facts about Cox Farms and its Fall Festival
Petting the animals at Cox Farms is always a hit with the kids. They’ve got a llama, alpacas and pigs. Cox Farms is also famous for its goats, who they say are spoiled rotten!
Cox Farms was started by brothers Eric and Steven Cox in 1972 on 40 acres near Herndon, Virginia. Today, they run more than 90 acres in Centreville.
You have 40 days to enjoy attractions like the Billy Goat Village, the Dino Slide and fresh baked apple pies from the Festival Market.
Enjoy a good scare this time of year? Cox Farms' “Fields of Fear” is a great way to get your fright-fix for Halloween. It’s 20 acres of haunted hayrides, ghoulish games and a cornfield of terror.
Squished, Smashed and stomped – that’s what happens to pumpkins and washed up jack-o-lanterns at Cox Farms after Halloween. It’s called Pumpkin Madness and it’s become an annual tradition.
