It's officially September, which means it's acceptable to start lighting pumpkin-scented candles and pull out your cozy sweater collection. It's also time to plan some fall adventures, and this spot has all the autumn fun you could dream of. Ottawa's Saunders Farm has tons of mazes, perfect pumpkins, and a creepy village to explore this year.
You can dive into autumn at this incredible spot.
Located just outside of Ottawa, Saunders Farm is a popular spot to visit during the harvest season.
The venue's Fall Festival is the largest in Ontario and one of the largest in Canada, welcoming around 60,000 guests over five weeks.
Things are going to look a little different this year due to COVID-19, but that doesn't mean the fun is cancelled.
The farm informed Narcity that it will be running at only five to 10% capacity in order to ensure visitor safety.
You can expect to indulge in tons of your favourite autumn activities, from pumpkin picking to wagon rides.
The attraction is home to the world's largest collection of hedge mazes, so you can get lost in endless scenic pathways all day long.
There are also bonfire experiences available at Saunders. You can cozy up at your own social distanced campfire and enjoy s'mores, drinks, and more.
During the spooky season, the farm is taken over by ghastly beings and monsters.
Those brave of heart can visit the famous FrightFest for some extra scary surprises.
In order to visit the farm, you must reserve a spot in advance online.
The Fall Festival runs from September 26 to November 1, 2020. Tickets will go on sale soon, and prices are yet to be announced.
This season, Saunders Farm has partnered with the Ottawa Sports & Entertainment Group to bring a new haunted experience to the city.
The Sawmill At Landsdowne is a six-day Halloween Festival taking place on the Great Lawn.
Running throughout the last weeks of October, the event will feature the biggest, longest, and scariest haunted walk experience Saunders has ever produced.
Visitors can wander through shipping containers that are haunted by a lost colony of Lumberjacks and Millworkers.
Tickets for the attraction are available online and are already selling out fast. Admission is $25 per person plus tax.
Whether you're looking for some spookiness or just want to enjoy some pumpkins, this farm has it all.
