If you want to pick a pumpkin, play in a corn sandbox, and jump on a giant trampoline, Pride of the Wapsi Family Farm has it all... and some.

The Long Grove, Iowa farm is open every weekend in the month of October, including Friday nights.

The farm includes pumpkins and animals and a corn maze, as well as some new and nontraditional activities like rubber ducky races and a huge trampoline they call the "Jumping Pillow."

"This provides a unique opportunity for families in town as families get more and more removed from the country," says Pat Dierickx, Co-Owner of the Pride of the Wapsi. "That's what makes farms like mine more and more important to spend a day out here and spend a day with their children."

The farm also hosts school tours and private parties during the week.
