    Valas gets better and better every year. The family that started this still runs it and adds new, fun activities each year. It is a great family experience.  more »

    We recently attended a wedding at the Vala's Pumpkin Patch. Our first experience, repeated by about a fourth of the attendees, was difficulty finding the place. There are virtually no signs once you leave the state highway, and the 'patch' is not easily visible from the road. One comes to a point where the pavement ends, three ways to go with no signage to the location. Many cars drove up a dead end as this is what their GPS's told them to do, only to turn around and keep searching. Even the transport drivers from the area were unfamiliar with the location. Once we found it, they didn't even have a sign on the front entrance. They have virtually no appropriate accommodations for the elderly, it was very difficult for our mother to get to barn in the venue. Their 'shuttle' was one dirty four wheeler (they know people are dressed for a wedding right?, attended by grampa's, gramma's and aunts and uncles, right, and it's 100 hilly rocky yards from the dirt parking lot to the barn....). The wedding itself was held on an area of uneven ground, with anyone with heels (it was a wedding after all) stumbling and struggling along the trail to get to the area and then into the grassy area 'chapel'. It was a fairly large affair with a lot of attendees, and they took almost two hours to serve the food (one line, one at a time, very slow pace). Serving was to start at 6:30, many were still in line at 8:30, not acceptable. The total setting and barn set up with nice, but the lack of awareness about the needs of guests who are attending a wedding was baffling. The wedding hosts (parents of bride and groom) did an excellent job given these shortcomings , so the overall affair was exceptional.

    Yes! This is THE thing to see in the fall. Reserve a cabin with a fire pit for a splendid day and evening at the patch. Plenty for kids to do and new stuff almost every year. They added a cool nerf ball room...which can only be experienced, not explained!

    It is like an amusement park of all things fall. Great way to send an entire day. Just make sure you bring your walking shoes.

    Lots of fun, but so expensive and busy. Looking for a cheaper alternative.
