Do you have a family favorite pumpkin patch that you like to visit? If so we would love to hear about it! Please feel free to tell us about them and send us pictures and locations, we’d be happy to share the great pumpkin patches that are in and around Pasadena!
One pumpkin patch that looks like it is sure to be fun for the whole family is located in the city of Monrovia, it is on Huntington Drive and Just west of Myrtle Ave.
They have jumpers, slides, a petting zoo, and of course lots and lots of pumpkins!
For those of you interested in a little adventure outside the city of Los Angeles, we suggest The Pupmkin Patch in Live Oak Canyon. We visited this patch last year and will be making a trip back out there very soon! They offer the most amazing pumpkin selection! They also have a corn maze, and tractor rides through the entire patch. If you don’t see a pre-picked pumpkin you like, feel free to make you way out into the pumpkin patch and pick one yourself. It is a great day of fun for the entire family.
We look forward to receiving your entries.
May the best pumpkins win! 🙂
