Earlier this month, I wrote this feature for Barkpost about some great fall/Halloween activities you can do with your dog. 25 of them, in fact.
Club Lake Plantation is a tree farm in Apopka. They have a beautiful wedding pavilion too.
But for the fourth year now, the plantation has hosted this fall festival. There's a pumpkin patch, corn maze, hay rides, a pumpkin slingshot, rubber ducky races, a big ol' playground for the kids and more. And it all surrounds a lovely lake with lilypads.
And the best part is, dogs can come!
So my friend and I loaded Lulu and Jasmine for a weekday trip.
We kind of let the dogs decide where we were going at first. Then we realized we might be getting lost. So we took the reins.
Back at "The Cow Palace," you can buy some great homemade (and Amish-made!) snacks to take home. There's also a snack bar cookin' up hot dogs and this amazing homemade lemonade. Yum.
Club Lake Plantation's Fall Festival is open 7 days a week during October. On the weekends it's $13.95 a person, but during the week it's sometimes cheaper. We only paid $5 to get in. And you don't have to pay to pick up a pumpkin at the pumpkin patch.
Dogs are free, as long as they're friendly, on their leash and you pick up after them.
