The visitors to the Wright's Market Octoberfest climbed aboard a ride that was pulled by a John Deere tractor, as the machine drove through a corn maze in Mardela Springs, Maryland, according to DelmarvaNow.
Visitors came from as far as Georgia to attend the Octoberfest celebration. Along with the tractor-pulled ride, there is also a group of goats, a long-horned Watusi bull named Zoro, a pumpkin ice cream stand, a John Deere tricycle track and a massive corn maze, the news source reported.
"This is our third year coming," local resident Melissa Long told DelmarvaNow about her son's love for the event. "He loves the billy goats. Even on days this isn't going on, we always stop to pet the goats."
Long noted that the rides were the attraction for many of the area children, but the event catered to adults as well due to the variety of fresh local fruits, vegetables and pumpkin-flavored treats.
Wright's Market Octoberfest is just one of many celebrations that occurs at the Mardela Springs farm, as the site hosts a spring fling, a watermelon festival and daily hayride tours, according to the farm's website.
