I love the Fall Season. I love every season but I really loooove the Fall Season! There are some great fall events in Paso Robles and I took the liberty of doing a bit of research in the name of pumpkins, of course! Someone had to do it....
Jack Creek Farms is packed to the brim with pumpkins, fresh fudge, hot apple cider and everything else to get you in the autumn spirit. (Speaking of fudge, I highly recommend the pumpkin fudge!) This is a great place to snap those family photos that you have had on your "to do" list all year. If you want to become a true pumpkin expert, take a peek at the Jack Creek Farm's "All About Pumpkins" for facts, history and fabulous recipes.
October 31st at Jack Creek Farms:
Halloween at the Farm from 10am to 5pm. Bring the entire family to the farm on Halloween Day. Every person who arrives in costume and poses for a photo will receive a FREE Jack-o-lantern!!! (Quantities Limited - while supplies last).
The River K Pumpkin Patch is another Paso Robles favorite. The Kunze family has been in the business of providing children with festive autumn entertainment for the past 39 years. Visit the corn maze, pick out a Halloween pumpkin and take a real hay ride while enjoying the season. The River K Pumpkin Patch is located at 5670 N River Road, Paso Robles, CA 93446
Paso Robles newest pumpkin patch is Granny's Gardens at San Marcos Ranch where you will find over two acres of pumpkins waiting for you! They have something for everyone whether you are seeking an itty bitty pumpkin, striped pumpkins, warty or white pumpkins- they will ensure that all of your pumpkin fantasies come true. You will be delighted to discover a huge corn maze, a straw maze, the Lost Dutchman's Mine and many crazy critters ready to greet you. Granny's Gardens at San Marcos Ranch is located at 775 San Marcos Road, Paso Robles.
After you've had your fill of pumpkin carvings and pumpkin pies, be sure to grab your costume and experience Halloween in Downtown Paso Robles. The annual Safe & Fun Halloween Downtown is a fantastic event for the entire family.
