FALL IN DES MOINES
Des Moines has everything you want in a city this fall. A Friday night at an apple orchard. A Saturday morning at the Farmers’ Market. A Sunday of pumpkin picking at Geisler Farms. Catch squeals of laughter on a hay ride. An autumn breeze while biking endless miles of trails. A park picnic beneath a skyline view. Catch fall foliage on a favorite golf course. An afternoon sampling craft brews or perfectly aged wines. Des Moines is a fall family retreat.
Spend your weekends with Growing Family Fun at Geisler Farms! September 3 through October 30. Navigate your way through the 10-acre corn maze and pick out the perfect pumpkin from the pumpkin patch. In additional to the maze, enjoy 15 other activities including the Big Slide, Jump Pad, rubber duck races, pedal karts, trikes for tykes, tractor tire swings, hamster rolls, and yard games. An ADA hayrack offers rides, weather permitting. Groups of 10 or more may reserve space at one of three fire pits. Restrooms, concessions and a gift shop are inside the Red Shed. Pumpkins and outdoor products available for purchase.
