Truck & Tractor Day


If your kiddos (or you!) have been dying to climb into a fire engine, honk a truck horn, or get behind the wheel of a school bus, this is the place to be.

Truck and Tractor day is one of our favorite fall traditions, make it yours!

If trucks and tractors aren’t enough to keep you busy, there are plenty of other activities for all ages! Take your best shot with a giant pumpkin slingshot. Decorate pumpkins, try out an assortment of games and crafts, and take a spin on the hayride. Children will receive a free hayride, pumpkin, and hard hat (1 per family while supplies last).

Whether you're a lover of sweet, savory, or spicy (or all three), we’ve got a treat for everyone with food trucks serving up a variety of cuisines throughout the event. 

Quiet Hour+

Accessibility Accommodations: To be mindful of all families and sensitivities, there is a quiet hour at midday. At this time, all horns, sirens, and other loud noises are silenced. 

Where to Stay

Sleep in a 500-year-old castle or in a brand new suite. Swim in the pool or float in a lake. In Lakewood, there is a place that's just right for you.
