Special In-Season Schedules
TGPP’s Center School: Our restored 1912 one-room schoolhouse hosts reenactments of school life 100 years ago. TGPP has partnered with the experts at the Moultrie County Historical and Genealogical Society to create the historical interpretation of the school, and we are continually gaining historical information, from documents to first-person narratives about this school. The schedule of their interactive illustrations is as follows:
2012 – Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of each week in October. The reenactment times are geared around the school field trips that have been scheduled on each of these days. As most schools choose mornings for their TGPP field trips, you are more likely to catch a marm teaching her class at that time. So, try to plan your TGPP visit for any morning Tues – Fri to slip back in time for a real feel of those good ol’ country school days!
TGPP’s Squash Tasting: Want to know what to do with all the different varieties of pumpkins and squash you can find here at The Great Pumpkin Patch? On Saturdays from 11-3, the presenters at Squash Tasting give both the seasoned and the novice chef priceless tips on cooking or baking with many of our varieties of pumpkins and squash.
TGPP’s Taste of the Patch: In the center of the Pumpkin Patch is our concessions area.
- Open 7 days a week is our 2-Mile Sweet Shop (named after the one-room schoolhouse that houses it). Pumpkin baked goods, popcorn, candy, cider slush and snacks of all kinds are available here!
- On weekends, we also have the Pumpkin Eatery which serves up grilled favorites like cheeseburgers and hot dogs, nachos, and our famous cider slush. The Pumpkin Creamery is also open, which exclusively serves the crowd interested in only ice cream! We’re also pleased to welcome Big R Concession’s Kettle Corn, and Chef Tippy’s cucurbit creations–such as pumpkin iced tea and squash chili.
