Yesterday I told you about all the adventurous activities there are to do in Corydon Indiana. But there are also plenty of low-key fun fall things to do there, too.
One of the things Bubbles was most looking forward to (aside from the mini-golf) was visiting Deere Farms. Deere Farms has pretty much everything you can think of to enjoy during the fall. Corn mazes, a pumpkin patch, hayrides, a little animal farm – lots!
We got there right as they were opening on Saturday morning so there wasn’t too much of a crowd yet. The announcement came that the first shuttle to the animal farm was about to depart so we decided to do that first. The shuttle was a big flatbed truck with benches and Bubbles really enjoyed riding it.
The animal farm was a short ride and once we disembarked there we were able to watch a little pig race. Four kids were selected from audience volunteers to participate by naming the pigs, then joining them inside the little track and run around along with them. There was a lot of giggling and squealing for sure.
After we had done everything at Deere Farms, we headed into downtown Corydon. We had been told that Fall Down on the Square was taking place that day, and it sounded like it would be fun to peek in on. I’m so glad we did because this ended up being one of the things we enjoyed the most.
Fall Down on the Square is a free event that’s open to the public and is sponsored by First Capital Christian Church. The fact that there was no cost at all for any of it kind of amazed me, because there was a lot to do. If you ever find yourself in the area when this is going on, I highly recommend it.
Tons of little booths and tents had games for kids to play, and they received candy as prizes. There was face painting and balloon animals, a huge bounce house, free BBQ, and a concert. Bubbles had a huge grin on her face the entire time we were there, and hubby was pretty impressed with his pulled pork sandwich and homemade peanut butter cookies.
In the square you’ll also find the Corydon Capitol State Historic Site. Corydon actually was the state capital of Indiana for awhile, and the original capital building is there for you to visit.
All around the square are a number of shops. For example there’s a drug store that has a soda fountain and a family-owned coffee shop on the same block. There was also an antique store called Old Town Store that made us feel very welcome with a sign and treats. We really appreciated the hospitality.
I think hospitality is a word that can sum up much of our visit. Everyone seemed genuinely happy to interact with tourists, which is not always the case when you travel. It definitely made us want to visit again soon!
Which fall family activity in Corydon Indiana would you do first?
I received complimentary passes to Deere Farms. No compensation was received; all words and opinions are mine.
