While we might not experience a lot of seasonal weather in Southern California, there're still plenty of ways to experience fall. Pumpkin patches are a great way to embrace the season, join friends and family for some Halloween-themed fun, and pick out the perfect pumpkin for some creative jack-o-lantern carving. 

While pumpkin patches may not be the every-street-corner attraction that they once were, most of the ones around today are family owned, and have upped their game with carnival games, rides, and petting zoos. Let's take a look at some of the spookiest spots to pick out a pumpkin in and around Long Beach.

Pa's Pumpkin Patch

Besides offering a wide variety of pumpkins to choose from, Pa's Pumpkin Patch also sells other natural fall decor, including haystacks, corn stalks, and gourds. Besides pumpkins, Pa's features pony rides, a petting zoo, and fair style games and rides. If you get hungry as you search for the perfect pumpkin, there's a convenient snack bar on site.

Mr. Jones Pumpkin Patch

A family business that has been selling pumpkins for five generations, Mr. Jones Pumpkin Patch offers several specialty and heirloom pumpkin varieties, like big mac, fairy tale, jack-b-little, we-b-little, Boston sugar, and an assortment of gourds. While you browse for a pumpkin, you can also visit and feed their farm animals, including rabbits, chickens, goats and ducks. The pumpkin patch also features a bounce house and giant slide for your little ones.
