Fall is here in the Texas panhandle and that means one of our favorite places is open for the season. Maxwell's Pumpkin Farm is celebrating their 13th year in business and have 80 acres of social distancing waiting for you. The farm is open every weekend now through November 1 with fields of pumpkins for you to pick and plenty of family fun activities.

"We've got our giant maze and all of your Maxwell's favorites plus new this year you'll find acres and acres of sunflowers ready for picking and fabulous fall photos," said Larry Border, owner of Maxwell's Pumpkin Farm.

Over 80 acres of Maxwell's farmland has transformed into a fall fun festival where families can enjoy over 30 activities and attractions. Sing-a-long hayrides will take you out to the giant maze, pumpkin patch, and sunflower fields. The Barnyard Ball, Green Acres game and play area, and tube swings are just a few of the activities to take part in this year. A fan favorite is always the Maxwell's Magic Carpet Ride, which is a nearly 100 foot long and 40 foot high slide. The ziplines will be open as well as the Sasquatch Paintball Gallery.

Since most of the activities and events are outside, social distancing is easy to conduct while having fun. Hand sanitizer stations are also placed throughout the fam as well.

While you are there, don't forget about Maxwell's Smokehouse. They are offering up brisket, pulled pork, chicken on a stick, sausage on a stick, corn dogs, hot dogs, funnel cakes, kettle corn, and more. There is nothing like smelling that smokehouse cooking on a crisp fall day.

Oh, and don't even think about leaving without a pumpkin or gourds. Jack-o-lantern pumpkins start as low as $2 with giant pumpkins starting at $30. And stay late on Saturday nights for the big fireworks show over the fields.
