With trick-or-treating being up in the air this year, we are all looking for fun festive activities to do with our kids to celebrate the Halloween season🎃

We gathered a list of Pumpkin Patches throughout (and outside of) LA. Get the details on each below and decide which one will suit your family the best✨

A heads up! From the research I did for this post, it seems that if you are going to visit on the weekend (especially the last two weekends of the month), it would be best to either choose a farm that requires an advanced reservation, or go early in the morning right when they open. Otherwise, it sounds like the lines could be pretty brutal given Covid restrictions. If you can make a trip during the week it sounds like it should be pretty easy no matter which farm you choose.

Happy pumpkin picking!🧡

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

It would be a good idea to call ahead before you make a trip out to the farm just to make sure nothing has changed with Covid policies and that they still have available crops.

Make sure you bring a mask!

Check the weather forecast before you go as the weather can vary greatly at this time of year.
