Please join us for a scenic ride through the rolling hills of southwest Connecticut for a Pumpkin Run on Saturday, October 3rd. The rain date will be Sunday, October 4th. Please arrive around 9:30 a.m. at our house (143 Beech Street, North Branford) for a 10 a.m. departure. Our first brief stop will be the Park & Ride lot at the intersection of Route 34 and the Wilbur Cross Parkway (Greenway Road in Orange) to meet any drivers who wish to join us there. We will leave from the Park & Ride at approximately 10:45 for a short drive on the Merritt Parkway to exit 44/BlackRock Turnpike. This is where our great adventure on the twisting, turning roads of Fairfield County will truly begin. We should arrive at our lunch destination at noon; the venue combines socially distant outdoor dining with the spirit of a convertible drive. Restrooms will be available. For those who would like to meet us there, please email individually to confirm our destination so we can preserve the element of surprise. After a good lunch we will take to the road again for a short drive to a local historic destination and then to our final destination which will provide a wide selection of pumpkins, pies, and seasonally appropriate goods. From this stop, the journey back to North Branford will take approximately 1 hour 18 minutes. Please email your RSVP or any questions to Karen Peacock.
