We had a really fun evening last weekend at the new Marana Christmas On The Farm. The Marana Pumpkin Patch and Farm Festival is hosting their brand of holiday fun in December now. It’s their first year offering this event and while I think there is some room for improvement, we had a great time and thought it was well worth the $10 admission.
The main attraction is a 20-minute train ride through Christmas light displays. The farm opens at 4 PM and train rides start at 6 PM. Check out my video below for a sneak peek at the fun.
Sledding was Quinn’s favorite part of the farm. I bet he slid down the hill 30 times and he would have kept going all night if we let him.
The jumping pillows and farm playground are also open. I suggest arriving when it opens to enjoy as much as you can before the sun sets, plus there are less people during the first hour.
The Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus meet and greet was also fun. It’s included in the price of admission and you can take pictures with your own camera. There’s even someone who will take your picture for you if you want the whole family in it. If you haven’t written a letter to Santa yet, there’s a separate booth you can do that at too.
Food, desserts, and hot chocolate are available to purchase. We found the peppermint brownies to be extra large and well worth the $3.50 price. We also splurged and let the boys ride the ponies for $4 each. It was the only activity not included in the $10 admission price.
