October Fest returns to Mardela Springs
MARDELA SPRINGS, Md. – People across Delmarva are celebrating fall at Wright’s Market in Mardela Springs.
Throughout the month of October, people will get the chance to enjoy all sorts of fall festivities.
They will get to take hay rides, train rides and eat delicious homemade pumpkin ice cream and pies.
There is also a corn maze and different games that teach families about Maryland agriculture.
It is something farmer Charles Wright says is critical for the community.
“We tell them about everything we grow and all the different crops that are growing in Maryland, so it just, they’re living in a rural area, agriculture is the number one industry in our county and in the state, and it just helps confirm why it’s important,” said Charles Wright.
The October Fest at Wright’s Market is happening every weekend in October from 10 AM to 4 PM.
It is free for kids under the age of two, but it costs 8 dollars for kids between 3 and 17 years old and 6 dollars for adults.
