October is a very popular time in and around Orlando, with many Halloween events taking place and celebrations at the Theme parks. If you have small children and want a little break from the busyness of the theme parks for just a few hours, and want a fun Halloween experience that is pumpkin and animal themed, not far from the 'Parks' in Kissimmee there is Green Meadows Petting Farm. Here you will find a delightful haven where children are able to pick a pumpkin, interact with the farm animals and learn about their environment.
Take a ride on the tractor driven hay-ride or train, enjoy a pony ride, milk a cow, pet the baby animals, watch the ducks and fish, learn about pigs, sheep, goats and more.
