Last year I wrote about all the fun to be had for families at the Middleton Farm north of Pasco. They deserve another shout out this year for their countless innovations that continue to please. The family opened this festival to the public in 2013 to share the farm life experience with our community. This year the Middleton’s commenced with the new Sunflower Festival that was open mid-September through October 3rd (weekends). Families were able to roam the fields of Sunflowers and many images of family fun popped up on Facebook pages of friends throughout the Tri-Cities.


All of October’s weekends will off the Fall Festival with Thursday hours 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., and Sundays from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Many of the favorites are back, including the corn maze. This year’s theme is Star Wars Mandalorian and covers eight acres! Additionally, it is wheelchair accessible! Another favorite each year is the pumpkin patch, eight acres of U-Pick pumpkins of many varieties.


Middleton’s website describes the many activities that were central to the festivities last year: corn maze; kid’s maze, jumping pillows, pumpkin patch, grain train, petting zoo, potato blasters, trike races, pumpkin train, human foosball, rat rollers, 9 square in the air, hayrides, cornhole, steer roping, pumpkin tetherball, pumpkin bowling, barnyard ball zone, straw mountain, tractor tire mountain, straw maze, and tug-o-war. Kids can get their faces painted, practice steer roping, play tick-tac-toe with real pumpkins.

But the Middleton family keeps adding more and more fun each year! Among the 2021 fun ideas created are a zipline, a tunnel slide, giant slides, pumpkin cannons, bull ring toss, and gaga ball, a game where you partake in a mix of dodge ball and tag within an octagon playing field.
