While many wait until the days before Halloween to pick out a pumpkin, we love having this vibrant vegetable around all season. Get your kids, a date, or friends together, or make it a solo mission, to find that perfect pumpkin to decorate your home. There are lots of places around Metro Vancouver where you can unearth the right one (or two) for you.

Rondriso Farms, Surrey — A short hayride will take you to the pumpkin fields where you can find your match. Say hello to the cows and chickens up close, and find something delicious in the general store.

Arts Nursery, Surrey — Pair your pumpkin expedition with a stroll through a community of scarecrows, and top it all off with a treat from a food truck.

Maan Farms, Abbotsford — Wind your way through a corn maze, indulge in a fall dessert, feed the barnyard animals, climb a large tire structure complete with tunnels and slides, and don’t forget your pumpkin.

Emma Lea Farms, Ladner — Once you’ve found your pumpkin or specialty gourd, gather around the cozy fire pit with their new pumpkin spice milkshake, or grab a hot apple cider and take a stroll through their Oat Maze.

Greendale Acres, Chilliwack — Get in the autumn spirit with fun activities for all ages, like their 12-acre corn maze – don’t get lost! The choice is yours here at Greendale Acres with over 15 different varieties in their pumpkin patch.

The Boroughs, Surrey — We’ll have plenty of free pumpkins at our Fall Event at The Boroughs on Saturday, October 15th! Pop by our Sales Centre in South Surrey for a family-friendly time, with pumpkin spiced lattes and hot chocolate from Steam Cart Coffee, hot cinnamon sugar mini donuts from Little oOties, and carver pumpkins from one of our favourite local family businesses, West Coast Gardens. See you at 2070 Oak Meadows Drive on October 15th from 12 to 5pm! Pumpkins and treats are first come, first served (while supplies last).
