Pumpkin Sunday at Grant-Kohrs Ranch in Deer Lodge, Montana

There will be something for everyone at Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site in Deer Lodge during the annual Pumpkin Sunday event from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm, Sunday, October 19.
Children ages 12 and under can venture into the pumpkin patch to seek out the perfect pumpkin to paint. Teenagers and adults can drop by the blacksmith shop and learn how to make traditional corn husk dolls or a non-traditional braided rattlesnake.
Wagon rides for young and old will be offered throughout the event. It’s harvest time, and cider and candle making provide a fun hands-on traditional activity for kids.
A hay maze, a bonfire for roasting marshmallow, a children’s craft, and an activity book will add to the fun.

Admission is free. Boxes will be provided for visitors to drop off canned goods for the local Food Pantry.
