5 GIFs that Perfectly Sum up The Great Pumpkin Fest

As area manager of digital marketing for California’s Great America, I get to tell the incredible stories of our park to the world—and take our biggest fans Between the Lines. I’ve been an incurable amusement park fanatic since I was a kid and have worked at two other parks (shout-out to Cedar Point and Valleyfair!). Now, I can’t wait to share my passion with our readers!

You know what’s super scary? Just how soon Halloween is! But fear not—for those who don’t like things to get too spooky, California’s Great America has an awesome, kid-friendly Halloween event called The Great Pumpkin Fest! The only thing you need to be scared of is missing out on all the family fun!

Located in the heart of Planet Snoopy, The Great Pumpkin Fest will be where families can find plenty of fall fun—like trick-or-treating, coloring, a hay maze, pumpkin decorating and more—during their day at the park. Kids 12 and under are even invited to dress up in their Halloween costume for the event!

If you’re on the fence about checking out The Great Pumpkin Fest this weekend, let these five GIFs convince you! We’ve pulled together five of them that show mom and dad just how much fun the kiddos can have at Great America this weekend.


Pumpkins on pumpkins on pumpkins—there are tons to choose from. Kids 12 and under get to pick the one that speaks to them, then decorate it and take it home!


Kids love meeting the PEANUTS gang—who also sports their best Halloween costumes just for The Great Pumpkin Fest. Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Marcie, Sally and others are all waiting to meet your family and have plenty of candy to share with trick-or-treaters!


No need to travel out to the boonies to get lost in a corn maze this year. At The Great Pumpkin Fest, families can stumble through a miniature hay-and-corn maze with Halloween surprises sprinkled throughout!


Three words. Pumpkin. Spice. Churros.


Snoopy is throwing a foam pit party just for kids. It’s like a bubble bath without the water!


Make your plans to visit The Great Pumpkin Fest soon because this big Halloween celebration only lasts for two more days: this Saturday and Sunday, October 28 and 29. See you in the park!
