TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - This year you won’t be able to pick out the perfect pumpkin, at least not at Buckelew Farms because the pumpkin patch is closing for good.
However, Terror in the Corn haunted house, Corn Maze by flashlight and the Zombie Mud Rud will continue to be ran by other family members. Those events will be open this October. The Christmas tree lots in December will also remain open.
After 30 years of running the pumpkin festival, the owners, Nick and Laurie Buckelew, have retired.
They ran the festival for 30 years, a tradition most in Tucson looked forward to every October.
Buckelew Farms was well-known for it pumpkin patch, maze, beer garden and kids’ corner.
“Thank you to all our loyal customers who have supported us throughout these past three decades,” the Buckelews said on their website.
