During the Christmas season, the crowds are all crammed into the park to see the lights at night.

During the Harvest Festival, is it crowded all day (on the busy days) or is there a group that comes during the day for the Craft Days followed by a group that comes later in the day for the Pumpkin Nights?

i dont know if that is how it worked this year,  but I am sure thats what the PTB want to happen.

We were there the first Saturday/Sunday of this month.  Saturday's crowd was very light until about 1pm then it started getting crowded.  It got really crowded closer to dark and when we left close to 8 there were still people coming in the turnstiles.  So I'd say yes there is definitely a crowd coming just for Pumpkin Nights

I went yesterday for about an hour and a half about 3PM and it was miserably crowded. I normally go on Fridays during the day as it is usually empty. I left before I yelled at someone because it was just filled with idiots... The drive from Springfield was just as bad with cars in the fast lane that had no business being in the fast lane and long lines of cars not close enough to pass in a group so I was passing a single car at a time on the right... Sadly, SDC does not sell liquor because I needed a drink by the time I got there and several more for dealing with the crowd...

Attendance of 26,378 and 20,300 last weekend, and 24,300 yesterday is pretty crazy numbers.   With numbers like this they probably are looking at a record attendance year again.   Lets see....next year new Mystic River Falls and probably expansion of Pumpkin Nights with ever expanding Christmas season.   Sounds like our  peaceful, quiet and relaxing 1880's town is going to need some serious infrastructure work.

Maybe next year they'll extend the length of this fest... I got an e-mail yesterday from SDC reminding people that there are only 6 days left for Craft Days/Pumpkin Nights, and it kinda shocked me 'cause it feels as if this fest only just started. Maybe if they extend it next year, the crowds will spread out just enough to be comfortable each day.

At least they're making enough money to do a bigger longer fire in the hole, fix the thunderation bump, restore the plunge to it's full glory, do the 3D Diving Bell, put in a western themed steakhouse, etc  :D

^ Yes, the Wishful Thinking Saloon- Where the Glass is Always Half-Full"!  (Maybe the PTB are looking at this and saying "Hey Duelist is right- we can do that stuff now! What an insightful guy!"  ;)
