Deals: Pumpkin Patch, Fall Festival, YMCA of the Rockies
posted by: Gretchen
My friend is adamant that retailers should not be putting out the Christmas items just yet – at least not until Halloween is over. However, as a deals lady – I start picking up random things that will be Christmas presents as soon as I can. It helps me spread my budget out a bit. No, I’m not done with Christmas shopping yet (and I’m usually still getting a few items days before). How soon do you start shopping for Christmas? Do you hate that Christmas stuff is out already at some retailers? Does the first snow make a difference for you even if it is gone the next day?
Pumpkin Patch. Colorado Pumpkin Patch. There is one more special Mile High Mamas Days at the patch on Sunday, Oct. 15. Anyone who visits us at 4600 E. Hwy 86 in Castle Rock from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. on Oct. 15 and says they’re with MHM can get in for $8.50/person…PLUS each get a small pumpkin to take home. You have the option of upgrading to a larger, carving pumpkin for a few extra bucks. Normal admission is $9.50 for adults ($11 for kids in mid-October), so the $8.50 rate with a pumpkin is a great deal! Kids 2 and under are free. Or try the Family Pass: One day use for 4 people (any age), 4 drinks (any size), and 1 pumpkin ($5 value). This is a great value at $38 to save families cash when they visit.
