Fun Pumpkin Patches in Livermore
Halloween is almost here which means pumpkins! And pumpkins means pumpkin patches! Reminiscing through old pictures, my parents always took me to a pumpkin patch. What beats an adorable chubby toddler sitting on a huge pumpkin?! Now, the pumpkin patch is the perfect opportunity for a cute date night with my boyfriend! The Pumpkin Patch is always a safe place for fun and the perfect time to pick the biggest pumpkin!
Pumpkin carving is an art for many and the occasion to let your creativity flow for others. Like myself, I try and create something unique each year. One year I spelled YOLO, meaning “you only live once” and another year I carved a cat! Finding a grand pumpkin at a local grocery store can be unsatisfying but a pumpkin patch gives you thousands of pumpkins to choose from
Pumpkin Patches such as G&M Farm and Joan’s Farm, located in Livermore, offer a variety of fun for everyone! Each unique pumpkin patch has awesome activities, for example; G&M Farm’s patch offers pony rides and their notorious maze (which was featured on the David Letterman show TWICE!) and the Cow Train. Joan’s Farm patch also has a maze, the classic hay rides, antique museum and its petting zoo!
Here’s another fun fact! G & M’s Pumpkin Patch’s corn field maze is modeled after the infamous Peanuts’ gang! The maze features Charlie Brown and Snoopy from a bird’s eye view! The Peanuts’ theme was inspired by the 50th Anniversary of “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” episode! For Peanuts’ fanatics, like my aunt, isn’t that just cute?! Now you can navigate your way around Snoopy and Charlie Brown!
As a child I remember seeing the never ending field of pumpkins and to find the perfect one was quite the adventure! Take the season’s opportunity to visit a local pumpkin patch in Livermore to enjoy these fun activities and get your pumpkin(s) with family and friends! You’re sure to have fun and hopefully find the pumpkin of your dreams!
