Fall in Nova Scotia is really quite incredible. The leaves on the trees change their colour to red, orange and yellow, pumpkins are carved and placed on every doorstep and in Kentville creatively designed pumpkin people start popping up all over the place!
We took a drive to the Annapolis Valley to enjoy the Fall amusements such as the corn mazes, apple picking and of course the Pumpkin People!
Our first stop was at Noggins Corner Farm in Greenwich, NS. They have a huge themed corn maze, smaller mazes for children, slides, a haunted house, apple picking and a farm market.
A view from the centre of the corn maze on a bridge so you can see which way to go!

There was also a VERY scary haunted house at Noggins Farm. I was the only one brave enough to go through it. It was put on by the Red Cross and very well done.
Next we moved on to Kentville to see the pumpkin people. The Pumpkin People displays were started by a local business group in the early 1990s. The town of Kentville took over the event a few years later, and made it into a bigger production — which now entertains thousands of visitors each fall.
Every year the people of Kentville design the pumpkins in a different theme. This year I’m guessing the theme was animated movies. I think you’ll agree it’s worth the drive to see them!
