Pumpkin Patches around Austin, Texas
published on October 14, 2013
It’s not lovely colors and falling leaves that tell Austinites Halloween is on its way—our seasons change closer to Thanksgiving. Rather, it’s when Austin goes from double-digit temperatures to highs in the 80s, cool evening breezes, and crisp mornings that we know long-awaited October has arrived. This year, October brought record rain to boot! With Halloween around the corner, something other than cats and dogs is raining down around ATX: pumpkins, pumpkins, pumpkins!
For many Austinites and their loved ones, visiting a pumpkin patch is an annual October tradition. Children and adults make silly memories as they search together for the perfect gourd, whether for the front porch or for homemade pumpkin pie.
Every Austin-area pumpkin patch is different: many have an array of fun activities for kids and grown-ups, from grilled corn on the cob to wagon rides and corn mazes. Some are right in town, and others offer the opportunity for an afternoon or day trip to the lovely country areas around Austin. Which patch will you visit?
