Adoptions From The Heart’s Fall Festivals 2019

Leaves are starting to fall, the weather is dropping, and pumpkin spice lattes are in full swing. It is finally Fall, which means that Adoptions From The Heart’s Fall festivals are coming soon. We do not want you to miss any of the Fall action; therefore, we have put together a list of all this year’s Fall festivals.

AFTH will have a tent with sweets, treats, tables, and chairs. Also, the farm will be selling food and drinks for families to purchase.

Grim Orchard has twenty-one attractions, so come ready to have a great time. Admission to the games has a flat fee of $15.95; which includes an all-day pass. Children age two and under are free. Tickets for one-time individual attractions are also available at $1 per Ticket.

Adoptions From The Heart will have signs directing families to the tent. You can RSVP for the event with Jenna We hope to see you there!
