Pumpkin hayride rescheduled for this Saturday

The Jamestown Community Farm Pumpkin Hayride has been rescheduled for this Saturday, Oct. 15. The event was postponed last weekend because of weather.

The rain date will be Sunday, Oct. 16.

Nick Robertson, owner of North Meadow Farm, and the Jamestown Community Farm are sponsoring the pumpkin hayride at the Jamestown Community Farm at the corner of old Eldred Avenue and East Shore Road.

The event will run from 1 to 3 p.m. and feature Nick’s team of draft horses. The horses will pull wagon loaded with children through the community farm fields to the pumpkin patch, where they can select a jack-o-lantern-sized pumpkin of their choice.

There will not be a charge for the hayride. However, donations will be accepted. All donations will be shared equally by the Jamestown Community Farm and the Conanicut Island Grange.
