It’s that time of year again for festivals, Halloween parties, and of course the Ocala Pumpkin Run. Be sure to mark your calendars because you will not want to miss this weekend long blowout. The 2nd Annual Ocala Pumpkin Run is of course an extraordinary car show, but it offers car enthusiasts and families much more than just classic automobiles. This reoccurrence of the run promises to be bigger, better, and louder than last year.
Of course, the focal point of the run is the cars. People bring their beautiful classic and modern vehicles from across the state and across the country to participate in shows, contests, and demonstrations for the crowds. Even if you do not have a car in the show, you can still participate in the people’s choice contests on Friday and Saturday, and let the judges and owners know which car is your favorite.
As mentioned before, the Ocala Pumpkin Run is much more than just a car show; it is a party for the entire family. Children 11 and under are completely free, and will enjoy plenty of kid friendly entertainment. Throughout the entire weekend, children can enjoy music, pony rides, face painting, pumpkin decorating, hayrides, and much more.
Adults and children alike will have their share of fun away from the hotrods as well. The show will feature some of Florida’s best musical artists and bands, great food, auctions, and tons of great vendors will be promoting their current products and promotions. You will certainly want to give yourself plenty of time to take in all of the sights, sounds, and festivities. Visit all of the booths in order to see fascinating product demonstrations and see what local Florida businesses have to offer.
The Ocala Pumpkin Run will be held on October 26th, 27th, and 28th on Castro Farms from 8 am to 4 pm every day. Ocala farms provide a beautiful scenic horse country backdrop for the event, adding to the very welcoming and inclusive atmosphere for the community of Ocala to come together and enjoy a great weekend. If you are looking for an interesting family-friendly activity to enjoy that is an escape from your normal routine, the Ocala Pumpkin Run provides the perfect opportunity. Whether you are a car aficionado or not, there is something for everyone at this event.
