Cold weather forces adjustments in Family Fun Day

In anticipation of colder weather on Saturday the Gering Kiwanis Club will be harvesting more pumpkin from our patch in order to provide a better sales environment for participants in Saturday's Family Fun Day at FARM.

Gering Kiwanis club member Rick Myers says over 200 pumpkins were harvested earlier this week to be decorated and sold but more pumpkins will now be available for those who do not want to venture into the pumpkin patch, which will still be open for picking off the vine.

All activities will continue as planned. However, if it is too wet the quarter dive in the large hay stack may be eliminated.

The corn maze, pedal tractor course will still be outside but everything else including pumpkin decorating, the toilet paper toss, bean collages and Scottsbluff High FCCLA will offer face painting will be moved inside.

The event runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Farm And Ranch Museum west of Gering.

Admission is $3 per car and pumpkins will be sold for $3. Lunch will be available on site as will slices of homemade pie.
