Pumpkin Patches and fun in the Sacramento area this month

By Heather Crivellone

October is always full of fun events and activities at our house. We love this time of year- the chill in the air, the leaves changing color, the caramel apples and the pumpkins galore! We love visiting new pumpkin patches and checking out the scarecrows, decorations, hay stacks, mazes and gourds. We love everything about this time of year! And if you are trying to find a place to take the kids for some “fall fun”, check out this list of local pumpkin patches and try and hit up one or a couple of them for some cheap family entertainment.
