Every day should start with a tractor ride and pumpkins everywhere! Every fall there is a pumpkin festival – it’s perfect to get in the spirit for Halloween
The pumpkin festival takes place every year the last weekend of September. You can also visit on the weekends throughout October. There are tons of pumpkins in different shapes and colors
Just couldn’t believe how many pumpkins and what cool colors they were!
But, there is more than pumpkins. There is a small tractor the kids can ride
But the real attraction is that they also take the kids for a ride with a real tractor, sitting in the tractor’s trailer! Had to go up there too, since I was carrying my toddler 🙂
The garden is also beautiful to walk around
Thanks to the friendly people working there, the atmosphere is great and we had a very pleasant morning!
*Bring a bag for pumpkins or other vegetables (there are also beans to pick yourself)
*Cash or Bancontact
*Wear rain boots, as it can get muddy
The entrance is free and you do not need to reserve a spot. You can park in the streets nearby. This is a stroller friendly activity, but keep in mind it can get muddy in the fields
You can combine this with the Provincial domain Bois des Rêves, a beautiful domain with a forest and a restaurant by the lake. The playground is pretty great too!
Provincial domain Bois des Rêves
Bois des Rêves means forest of dreams in French – and it is exactly that for kids! It offers a great playground for all ages, a forest and a café by the lake. At just half an hour away from Brussels, it is one of the best provincial domains nearby
You can also combine it with a visit at Château de La Hulpe, a 4km stroller friendly hike around the 19th-century castle with lakes and forest
You can combine this with the trampoline park Kojump in Waterloo

The pumpkin festival at Potironnerie is a great way to welcome fall! Lots of pumpkins and a tractor ride for the kids – we had to go back 🙂
About half an hour drive from Schuman, Brussels (or about an hour by public transport)
