While Hicks Nurseries won’t be offering some of its traditional fall festival activities such as hayrides and games this year, families can still experience the magic of the season. Bring the kids to enjoy the all-new animated story titled, “Otto’s Fantastic Pet Parade” which follows Otto the friendly ghost and his friends as they explore the importance of friendship and teamwork. There will be a separate outside entrance and line to promote safety and social distancing on the busiest days. Otto is also making appearances for pictures on weekends and holidays.  

Tasty fall food favorites including homemade pies, kettle corn, and fudge-dipped donuts will be offered to-go.
