Given how different things are this year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, there are important safety guidelines to mention. These guidelines are found in their entirety on the website for Deceased Farm. However, visitors to the scary attraction can rest assured that their health and safety are of utmost importance. Aside from social distancing, Deceased Farm is also limiting ticket sales and training their staff about social distancing and proper disinfecting.
Family-Friendly Fall Activity Alternative: Clinton Sease Farm
Since Deceased Farm isn’t recommended for children under the age of 12, you may look for an alternative family fall activity. Luckily, Deceased Farm is a local favorite, Clinton Sease Farm during the day. Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Clinton Sease Farm’s hayride is operating at a 50% cap. Additionally, masks are required on the ride.
Sadly, this weekend September 18-20th, and next, September 25-27th are the last weekend for Sunflower Weekends at Clinton Sease Farm. This event has a viewing platform and walking paths. This event is perfect for family fall photos as there are prop stops along the way. Admission is $10/day and children under 3 are free. This also includes a hayride and one cut-your-own Sunflower. Tickets are available for purchase at the door or online. Also of note, the cost of admission does not include the corn maze, pumpkin patch, or playgrounds.
So if you’re in the mood for a frightful evening, Deceased Farms has just the event for you. However, if you’re looking for a more mild, family-friendly event- check out Clinton Sease Farm during the day. Either way, check back with The Lexington Yankee for more fall activities.
