Hi,
Just looking for a little clarification on 1st responders weekend, it’s it September 24 & 25 or October 24 & 25? Both months are mentioned, is it both months?
Thank you!

Thank you for giving back to our military and first responders! It is nice to see positive recognition for the work that they do. They spend a great deal of time away from their families as they protect and serve others, and it’s a great way for us to take some time for our own family and have some fun with the kids. Our kids talk about the pumpkin farm all year long because they love it so much! Thank you!

Thank you so much for recognizing the military and first responders.. it truly means so much. I am an army veteran and I’m very thankful and I can’t wait to take my 3 year old son there. He loved it last year too
