GREAT VALLEY, N.Y. (WKBW) — They come in all shapes and sizes, and even different colors; and after 24 years of growing pumpkins, one Western New York farm keeps getting bigger.

'Pumpkinville' just outside Ellicottville is a magical fall wonderland for families, and it re-opens this weekend.

"We try to get a good variety," says Dan Pawlowski, the owner of Pumpkinville, "we are still picking out a lot of them."

This year you'll not only be able to pick from 30 acres of pumpkins, but pick out something sweet, too. Pawlowski says there's plenty of things to keep your kids entertained.

"[There are] baby chicks hatching weekly, kids can handle them and touch them [and] an observation beehive that's really neat, and a carousel."

Pumpkinville is also raising money for a good cause. This is the second year of the "Sunflower Days" where you'll be able to pick out sunflowers with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the Pink Pumpkin Foundation of Olean, a regional breast cancer foundation.

Still not convinced?

"You can buy a pumpkin everywhere, just throw a rock down the road and you'll be able to find one," Pawlowski says, "but people wany to come spend the day and have fun in the country, and that's what we have for them here."
