The Hugo Pumpkin Festival Is Almost Here!

September 23rd, 2019 by

It’s harvest season, and as the weather cools, you can bring the whole family out to pick a pumpkin and enjoy the outdoors at the 5th Annual Hugo Pumpkin Festival!

When and Where

The Pumpkin Festival will be held at the Endangered Ark Foundation from Thursday, October 3 to Sunday, November 3. Hours vary by the day. Admission starts at $6 per person, while various packages allow access to more activities. Children two years old and younger may enter for free. The Endangered Ark Foundation is located at 2657 East 2070 Road, Hugo, Oklahoma 74743.

Fun and Games

The pumpkins are ready for harvest, and you can browse the pumpkin patch for your very own prize pick. The festival offers a variety of outdoor activities for family fun, and this year’s event will make the most of the brisk fall weather. You can embark on a hayride to visit the elephants in residence at the Endangered Art Foundation, or sail through the air on the zipline.

Kids can climb the sprawling hay mountain, romp around the bounce house, or leap and bound on the kangaroo air pillow. They can also cruise around the festival grounds on the barrel train ride. On certain days, the elephants will be standing by for an interactive feeding, and you can see these peaceful pachyderms up close!

If you want to test your puzzle solving skills, you can enter the escape room for the Escape Area 51 Challenge. Up to 10 people can participate in this timed event, and you’ll need to work as a team to beat the clock. For this year’s festival, you can also participate in the new Wipeout challenge to test your poise and agility.

Catch A Movie

The festival will also screen a scary movie outside on Halloween night. The gates will open at 8:30 p.m. for guests to bring their own blankets and chairs, and the horror flick will start at 9 p.m. Entry is $1, and you can vote for the film to be shown. This year’s options are the genre-defining Halloween and the self-aware satire Scream. Voting ends at noon on Halloween. Keep in mind that both films are rated R.
