BABES! Any Pumpkin Patch lovers in the house?! Because if you’re anything like me, fall is your JAM. You love pumpkin spice lattes so much you EMBRACE the stigma. You go somewhere that has pumpkins? You turn that place into a full blown photoshoot.
Too intense? My bad – I’m just being real 😂
But whether you’re as into fall as me or you just love a good Halloween-inspired date-night/night out with the kids, you’re going to LOVE what I’m about to show you.
It’s called Pumpkin Nights. And no, this post is not sponsored, my boyfriend Caden and I just decided to go see what it was all about last night and we were seriously BLOWN AWAY so I had to tell you all about it. Seriously you guys, to call this place a pumpkin patch is kind of an understatement because it’s seriously a pumpkin WONDERLAND.
You walk in and it takes you through a tunnel of pumpkins – a tunnel of lit-up, perfectly carved pumpkins. CAN YOU SAY PHOTO-OP?! (I may or may not have spent about 15 minutes in there trying to get the perfect shot – no shame in my game okay…. but you can’t really blame me because when you see how cute it is you will want to hang there all day too)
And then once you pass through the tunnel, you walk through an entire wonderland of different themed areas. Plus, they hand out a little trivia game for the kids to find clues along the way and win a prize at the end.
The first area is Harry Potter themed which is the coolest thing EVER I mean come on! They have the theme music blasting, pumpkins carved with different spells and a REAL LIFE OWL for you to take pictures with!
Then, you walk through a Chinese Dragon themed area with cultural decorations, red lighting and a huge 40-foot dragon made of pumpkins for you to pose in front of.
After that, you head over to the ‘under the sea’ themed area with a giant pirate ship, bubbles, a sand bar, and an octopus that changes color! And it’s practically all made from pumpkins. Over 3,000 pumpkins to be exact. Now you see why I was so impressed with this place?!
After you venture through that area, there are horse back rides, glow-in-the-dark corn hole, teeter totters, and – just when you thought it couldn’t get any better – there’s a walk-up MOVIE THEATRE playing Coco!
And remember the sand bar I talked about earlier? If you search through the sand and find a token, you can pick up a free pumpkin at the end.
Once you’ve seen it all, there are food trucks with funnel cakes, pizza, cookies, ice cream – you know, all the good stuff.
And the best part? They’re located all over! They have one in LA at the the Pomona Fairplex (that’s the one I went to), Auburn CA, Denver CO and Salt Lake City UT!
I’d also recommend buying tickets online at their website to avoid getting there and having them be all sold out (I’m told they sell out quick!).
ALSO – if you haven’t seen my blog post about last year’s favorite pumpkin patch, I’d check that out too because that place is still one of my favorites as well (in fact, I might go there tonight lol).
Got any fall-inspired recommendations for me? Let me know in the comments! xx LOVE YOU ALL
Awe…that looks so fun! What a neat and festive place! Cute photos too!
Always nice to see couples have fun…kinda warms the heart. What a great date night idea.
I’m single and well, I have only had crushes and now I know why it’s called crushes because your heart breaks when you are rejected…oh, well…maybe God wants me single for the rest of my life…and that’s okay too.
You kids keep having fun!!
Hey, Maddie! This post is so cute. What lens did you use to shoot these photos?
