Find a local Pumpkin PatchWhile visiting a Pumpkin Patch is usually available throughout Autumn, it makes a particularly fun event during the month of October to help get you into the spirit. Patches vary from region to region, but many of them offer events like costume contests, hay rides, face painting, small haunted houses, corn mazes, and more Fall fun. It’s also a nice opportunity to support local farmers and see a variety of pumpkins that you might not see at your local grocery store. Best of all, visiting pumpkin patches is free! At PumpkinPatchesandMore.org you can find listings for pumpkin patches (and related events) for all of the USA, as well as the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. Local Harvest also offers a search that locates small farms, farmers markets, and other local food sources where pumpkins can be purchased. And you thought you’d be chilling at home this weekend.

Sean and I were lucky enough to find a local patch that had a great atmosphere and lots of activities, which we have been patronizing for 7 years now (Johnson Brothers at Goldenwest College in Huntington Beach, CA- check them out!). We don’t even have kids, but we find ourselves here every year among the families, fighting the leaf-filled punching bags, petting the farm animals, and perusing the pumpkins. I think it’s a good indicator that anyone can have fun at a pumpkin patch. Not to sound too sappy, but it’s also nice sometimes to find activities with a slower pace that just allow you to smell the crisp October air and hang out. And as any Halloweenie will tell you, it’s a lot funner than just picking up your Jack-o-Lantern to-be at the grocery store.
