Pumpkin Patch, Pig Races, Mazes & More!
October 7-31, 2017
French Prairie Gardens, St. Paul, OR

The crisp fall air means it is time for some family fun at our pumpkin patch. Fall on the farm is much more than just pumpkins, we have animal feeding, giant slides, a corn maze, a hay maze, and a farm ninja challenge! There is so much to do for all in the family itís hard to believe there could be a favorite, but the event everyone talks about is our Pigtucky Derby. The derby is our famous pig races!

The pumpkin patch event runs for 4 weeks in October from the 7th to the 31st. Unlimited event wristbands are available for purchase and cover most of the things to experience. www.fpgardens.com



Art in the Garden - Mirrors of the Mind: The Noh Masks of Ohtsuki Kokun
October 14 - December 3, 2017 ē Garden Hours
Japanese Garden, Portland, OR


Included with Garden Admission. Thirty hand-carved Noh masks by Ohtsuki Kokun and a selection of elegant brocade costumes from the traditional silk looms of Orinasu-kan in Kyoto bring the elusive world of Noh drama to Portland in the exhibition Mirrors of the Mind: The Noh Masks of Ohtsuki Kokun. The exhibition is highlighted by performances by Noh actor Kawamura Haruhisa, who has been designated an Intangible Cultural Asset, during the opening days of the exhibition. A demonstration of Noh mask carving will be presented by Mr. Ohtsuki, who will also be present for exhibitionís opening days. This aristocratic form of theater art is vastly different from the exuberant peoplesí art form of Kabuki.
