Pumpkins are an essential part to both the Fall and Halloween Season and are used for a variety of things including decor, baking and carving. Tons of pumpkin patches all over the nation provide visitors with an array of different shapes and sizes of pumpkins to assure they find exactly what they’re looking for. If you’re using your pumpkins for carving, your best bet is to pick a pumpkin that is large enough to carve your masterpiece! If you want to cook with your pumpkins, the medium to smaller sizes are a great option to help the process go more smoothly.
Some people enjoy growing their own pumpkins, while others like to take the family to a local pumpkin patch to pick their own. This is a great way for families to spend time together, all while enjoying the crisp air that the Fall Season brings. Most pumpkin patches take place at farms, and are sometimes a main attraction at Fall Festivals. Along with pumpkin picking, festivals offer families an endless amount of seasonal entertainment to participate in and sometimes have stations set up where the kiddies can enjoy pumpkin carving or painting. This way you can take home an already decorated or carved pumpkin to use as decor!
