Fall leaves, crips air and cozy nights are here. There are only a few weekends lift to visit our local
pumpkin patches to enjoy their autumn events. Kids love the excitement of wagon rides, corn mazes,
and the opportunity to pick out the perfect pumpkin to carve for their doorsteps. Many of our local
farms have added other fall and Halloween themed activities too. Kiwan Farms on Hawthorne Road
hosts an all-out pumpkin fest. Venture out to FrightFest at Saunders Farm in Munster or plan a picnic to
Proulx Farms in Cumberland.
