Harvest Festival

Saturday, October 12, through Sunday, October 13

A 30-minute drive down the Jackson Highway delivers day-trippers to the bountiful and always bustling Davis Ranch. This weekend the ranch emerges in full autumnal form with hay rides, tractor rides to the pick-your-own pumpkin patch, a corn maze, and a mountain of dried gourds that will have you feverishly perusing Pinterest for gourd crafts. Free, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily at 13211 Jackson Road in Sloughhouse, (916) 682-2658, www.zslproductions.net/harvest.
