Central California Halloween and Pumpkin Patch Guide

Oct 22, 2015 03:21AM ● By Kevin

The leaves have turned nationwide and will soon be canvassing our lawn and streets with their beautiful colors. Halloween candy, costumes, decorations are selling out fast in store, and best of all - fall/pumpkin flavors (can we mention coffees and beers?) have been soothing the stomachs of fall enthusiasts everywhere.

Got the itch to paint or carve some pumpkins? Are you prepared for trick-or-treating? Fall is here! As the seasons will soon change once again, we want to make sure all of your plans are accommodated. So, get your carving tools out and plug these area spots into your GPS so you can find the biggest and best pumpkins in all the land.
