Horseshoe Bay Farms Incorporated says hundreds of visitors took advantage of public tours Saturday, despite rainy cooler weather. The non-profit group offered group and self-guided tours of the farms' historic 8.5 acres during the annual Egg Harbor Pumpkin Patch Festival. Horseshoe Bay Farms Incorporated Board Member Andy Gill says the tours gave participants a chance to offer suggestions on future uses for the property. He says visitors offered some great suggestions.
Gill says while the exact number of visitors is still being tallied there were about 500 people who took advantage of the free Pumpkin Patch Festival parking and shuttles. He says many came strictly for the tours.
