Looking for something fun and safe to do this October? Bucks County’s many beautiful town and Main Streets are all lovely to walk around, it’s hard to choose just one! Here’s how to spend a day up in upper Bucks County in the charming town of Perkasie…
Shop for fall at AGA Farms
Take a trip AGA Farms for the ultimate fall spirit boost! Pick from more than 20 varieties of pumpkins straight from the patch. After, head to their shop to purchase the perfect haystack to prop those pumpkins up. While you’re there, dip into the locally made honey. If you want a souvenir that will last, try on their handcrafted alpaca outerwear to purchase for yourself or as the most special gift for a friend.
Wine Tasting at Bishop Estate Vineyards
Un”wine”d at Bishop State Vineyard and Winery. Check out their cozy cottage, where you can do a tasting of 6 of their 21 wines. Looking to keep the trip more upbeat? Dance the night away with one of their live outdoor bands on the weekend. Oh, and don’t forget to check out their rotating vendors and food trucks!
Perkasie is full of history. Tour the Pearl S. Buck House to understand the inspiring history of this Pulitzer and Nobel Prize winner. During this interactive tour, you can learn how Ms. Buck used her fame to shed light on the rights of marginalized communities. The museum’s goal is to have visitors come out thinking more comprehensively about their own values and how to take action to make the world “a good and peaceful place.” Now through October 31, 2020, tours of the home and gardens are free!
Grab a pink sprinkled sundae at The Hickory Stick
The Hickory Stick Ice Cream wants you to embrace frozen treats year-round. They have a diverse selection of desserts from Philadelphia water ice, to Stocks pound cake, to famous ice cream sundaes and even gluten-free pastries! They have cold brew on tap and lattes galore to tastefully pair with your favorite menu item. To make your purchase even sweeter, every time you request their neon pink sprinkles during the month of October, a portion of the sales will go to Pine2Pink!
In addition to visiting all of these places in Perkasie, many businesses in Perkasie – and other participating Bucks County towns -- have created special offers for the month of October for Pine2Pink’s “Eat,Drink & Buy Pink” campaign. Make a day out of it and stop in for a dessert or a bite to eat!
Have fun exploring!
