– Visitors can enjoy the famous fall festival. Music lovers can take part in the concerts held in the Horseshoe Bar, featuring live music from several Texas music artists. The pumpkin patch hosts the annual Harvest BBQ Festival, featuring hog roast, fall entertainment and an outdoor haunted house. Other events include a Fall Ale Party at the Broken Plate Restaurant, featuring live music by The Bluegrass Brothers.

-Adults will definitely love the farm tour. You can tour the famous pumpkin patch in Round Rock. The farm tour covers approximately three miles of county property where the historic cobblestone streets are located. On your tour, you will pass by the historic Round Rock Opera House and the 16th Street Bridge.

-The Texas Spirit Mazes challenge every participant with one obstacle per stage. The first two stages are called the Corn Maze and the Ladder to Hell. This competition is not as easy as it seems since you have to find all the way through the maze to reach the finishing line. This is challenging, but very entertaining. The Texas Spirit Mazes is held from mid-May through mid-Sept.

-The Texas Spirit FarmMaze is held on the last weekend in the month of Saturdays. The entire place turns into a corn maze on the fourteenth weekend of each month. The entire attraction is completely different from the rest. It’s hosted by volunteers and featured on television. The volunteers manage the event by making sure everything runs smoothly.

– Survive the Maze is another unique attraction in Round Rock. This place is filled with real pumpkins and covered with hay bales. There are five fun challenges to complete each weekend including the Escape From Pompeii, The Big Top and the Corn Maze. This is definitely an attraction worth checking out.

These are just some of the TX attractions you can enjoy during your weekend breaks or holiday trips to San Antonio and Texas. The city has more than enough to keep you busy during your break or an entire vacation. So, if you are in town for the weekend, why not try to check out one of these unique attractions.

The Texas Spirit FarmMaze and Halloween Party are a grand affair every Friday night from 6pm to 10pm. Get ready for the most haunted experience in town. Doors open at 6pm and the maze begin an hour before that. If you like to play in the haunted house, you can do so right before the party starts.

On the second weekend, the Fall Fun and Music Fest are held at the Depot Park. Come listen to live music while enjoying the corn mazes, rides and pumpkin patches. Bring your camera to capture the wonderful pictures of the beautiful landscape and scenery. The festival is free and you don’t need a membership or special passes to attend.

On Saturdays, the Texas Spirit FarmMaze is back to haunt you all over again. The Haunted House will be open daily starting on a.m. Every day. You can come anytime during the days and enjoy all the activities. The farm itself is a great place to relax, eat and walk around, as it offers scenic views of the surrounding countryside.

There are even times when the pumpkin patch hosts a photo op with some of their newest residents. The photo op is free and you can choose between two photos – one for the kids and one for you (the grand-parents). As a resident of the maze, you will be invited to attend these photo ops so you can get those wonderful seasonal memories. Whether you are looking for a comfy place to sit and relax, meet a new friend or just want to jump around and have fun, the Texas pumpkin patch is the place for you.
