Last weekend, the boys and i went to the Cal Poly Pomona Pumpkin Festival – a yearly tradition of ours. This is a really unique pumpkin patch in Southern California. Each year Cal Poly Pomona holds the Cal Poly Pomona Pumpkin Festival so that guests from all over Southern California can experience a more farm like experience at a pumpkin patch. It's pretty incredible...there are pumpkins as far as the eye can see. thousands and thousounds. Plus there are food booths, fruits and veggies to purchase that are grown right at the college, games and fun for the kiddies, a petting zoo and more.
Check out some of the photos from our visit.
Vann's favorite part of the Pumpkin Festival was the corn maze. He ran all the way there. him and his daddy got to follow the corn maze map and find different stations to solve a riddle. at the end they got a special corn maze button. they had so much fun.
Another fun thing that takes place at the Cal Poly Pomona Pumpkin Patch is the Insect Festival. There you can see all sorts of amazing insects and also touch a feel them. I stayed clear of any of the creepy crawlers, but i have to admit, there are some beautiful insects out there. Here are some photos of the boys inside the insect festival part of the Pumpkin Festival.
when you go to the Cal Poly Pomona Pumpkin Festival, you must stop by the Farm Store. there are so many unique products and homemade items available for purchase, including fresh made baked goods, plants, food, local honey, dried fruits, gourds, cornstalks, drinks, sandwiches...you name it. and everything is so fresh and yummy.
If you can't make it to the Cal Poly Pumpkin Festival, it's okay. The good news is that you can still make a trip to the Cal Poly Pomona Pumpkin Patch during the month of October. It's open to the public weekdays and weekends. You can still get pumpkins for $5 and visit the Farm Store. So head over and check it out.
