Taylor's Greenhouse in Hoxie is preparing for special fall activities. Harvest Fest will begin Friday.

"I have always wanted to do this," said Lori Simmons of Taylor's Greenhouse. "Growing up my family always had a harvest party. We wanted more people to come so we decided to have a huge party."

Attractions available to participants will include corn and hay mazes, face painting, old-fashioned barn games, hay tramp, scavenger hunts, hayride, bonfires and s'mores.

"We love families and we want to see them happy," Simmons said. "The maze will be the most fun, but parents watching their children have fun will be the best."

A bounce house will also be available for children on opening night. Participants can pay per attraction, or purchase the unlimited fun pack for $8.

"Friends have volunteered to help every weekend without expecting anything in return," said Simmons. "Its been amazing how many people have helped us. It's been such a blessing."

Several residents have donated their time to help prepare for the activities, including a local farmer who planted corn for the maze. Simmons' children, Andrew, 13, Emma, 11, and Eli, nine, have also helped with the upcoming event.

"Also without my brother and husband Harvest Fest would have never happened," Simmons said.

The county also provided caution signs, which have been placed near Taylors, warning motorists of children present.

"We were amazed at how fast they put the signs up," said Simmons. "Within 24 hours after we called they had them up."

The fall festivities will be offered during Taylor's regular business hours, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., and will also be held Thursdays from 6-10 p.m. and on Fridays and Saturdays from 6-11 p.m.

"We are getting calls every day and we are having people schedule for the event," Simmons said. "We are getting really excited."

Pumpkin-painting lessons will also be offered. Those interested in lessons are encouraged to schedule an appointment.

For more information or to schedule a painting lesson call Simons at 417-631-8080.
