Pumpkin Patches and fun in the Sacramento Area

pumpkinsBy 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.

  1. Hi! I have one more fun stop to add to your list if that’s okay? Visit the Roseville Theatre Arts Academy in Roseville the next two Saturdays (10/19 and 10/26) to see a brand new show called “CSI Transylvania” and then after the show visit our Pumpkin Patch to take home your own favorite pumpkin! It’s fun for all ages, and a totally unique experience you won’t find anywhere else in the area!! For more information, visit RTAA’s website – http://rosevilletheatreartsacademy.com – or call the Box Office at 916-772-2777. Thanks, and hope to see you there! 🙂
