One of our favorite seasonal activities is visiting pumpkin patches (and maybe taking a good Instagram or two while we're there). Here are some favorite spots in Washington for pumpkin picking, maze wandering, and all-out fall fun!
1. Carpinito Brothers U-Pick Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze, Kent
First on the list is Carpinito Brothers U-Pick Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze, a fun and festive spot for the fall. There, you'll find a range of members from the squash family, from teeny-tiny gourds to massive, jumbo pumpkins. Over the 20 acres of property, there is sure to be a perfect pumpkin for all your seasonal needs. Additionally, you can get lost in a giant Sasquatch corn maze, play games in the family fun yard, buy fresh local produce, and take a tractor-driven hayride!
The festivities are open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., from Sept. 29 to Oct. 31.

2. Fairbank Farm, Edmonds
The perfect spot for kiddos, Fairbank Farm has a barn full of baby animals and a Tiny Tot "maize maze." Upon entering the farm, you'll receive a cup of food you can share with ducks and chickens in the chicken run. Additionally, families can explore the vegetable garden and wander through Hidden Bear Trail, which leads to magical Pumpkin Land. This farm is purely harvest-themed -- no scares here! -- and it's the perfect spot to take the little ones.
The farm is open to the public Saturdays and Sundays in October from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

3. Gordon Skagit Farms, Mount Vernon
At Gordon Skagit Farms, you can "experience fall, one pumpkin at a time!" Autumn is abundantly around here, where apples and pumpkins are ready to be picked, cider pours by the barrel, and a haunted barn awaits for the bravest of visitors. The farm itself is owned by three generations of family farmers, and work hard to create an enchanting experience for your family too!
