Pigitential Races at Great Country Farms
PRLog - Oct. 12, 2012 - LEESBURG, Va. -- Bluemont, VA – A key election trend is emerging at Great Country Farms http://www.greatcountryfarms.com/index.php/annual-events/fall-harvest-festival.html.
As the presidential candidates continue to visit this swing district, the daily Pigidential Races may become a leading indicator for the national election. Farm raised pigs are tagged with candidate monikers and pitted against one another in multiple daily run offs. The results are tallied and accurately predicted the outcome of the 2008 election. Weekend emcee Farmer Dave Marsh observes, “I wonder if we wouldn't be better served by electing Elmer the Pig. He’s not afraid of the issues; no one would call him a chicken.” There are rumors about a write in campaign supporting resident and elder statesman Elmer the Pig but the next several weeks will be crucial.

The seasonal festivities culminate in the fantastical Pumpkin Glow Nights October 26 & 27 when over 3,000 hand carved jack-o-lanterns are lit to create a spectacular display.
Regular festival day time festivities extend into special evening events including carving contests, flash light corn maze tours, bonfires and more. Local schools, sports, and civic groups carve Glow Night display pumpkins and can gather beforehand for carving parties along with family and friends. Owner Kate Zurschmeide explains “Glow Nights require excellent timing and a bit of luck. Last year’s October snow storm was a surprise but that’s what farming is all about.” Save those old pumpkins and burned out jack-o-lanterns for Pumpkin Chunkin’ November 3 & 4.

Open Daily September 29 - October 28 9am-6pm.
Weekdays: $8 per child $10 per adult;
