Best Local Pumpkin Patches
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.
