The holidays are about family, and so is Sweet Berry Farm, which makes the Marble Falls attraction's Thanksgiving Celebration all the more special.

The farm, run by generations of the Copeland family, will be open November 20-December 1, including Thanksgiving on November 28.

“Thanksgiving is special to us,” Lacy (Copeland) Garcia said. “We wanted to do something as a family, and we wanted to create something for families to do while everyone is together.”

Garcia and sister Raelynn took the idea of the Thanksgiving Celebration to their father, Dan, who quickly agreed.

Sweet Berry Farm is open 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Wednesday, November 20, through Sunday, December 1. Special event admission is $16 for ages 3-14 and $6 for ages 15 and older. Admission is free for ages 2 and younger.

You can enjoy the following activities:

Turkey Hunt

Unique to the Thanksgiving Celebration, wooden turkeys are set up around the farm for visitors to "hunt."

Texas Maze

In the shape of the Lone Star State, maze runners are tasked with finding 12 Texas towns before exiting.

Sand Art

Choose hollow charms from a variety of shapes to fill with colored sand.

Small Kids' Maze

Ages 4-10 can make their way through the maze to ring a bell, marking their successful exit.

Also during the celebration, you can feed the farm's goats and jump in the Berry Bouncy House.

Garcia said she and her sister look forward to hosting this event every year.

“We started this business with 80,000 strawberry plants,” she said about her family's pick-your-own business, which also has pumpkins in the fall. “It’s unique to Marble Falls. There’s not many pumpkin patches around. It’s our home, and we’re always trying to make it better, to make it special for everyone else as well as us.”
