Pumpkin Patch Guide [RGV 2017]

Pumpkins, pumpkins, everywhere you turn in the RGV! Happy Autumn y’all! Once again, it’s pumpkin patch season.

Pumpkin Patches in the RGV 2016

If you are looking to purchase some pumpkins in the RGV or simply just take some fun fall photos of your kids, a pumpkin patch is a great place for that! (Here are some great tips on photographing your kids.) Then gather inspiration from the 32 No-Carve Pumpkin Ideas.

We have once again gathered a list of great locations that will have a pumpkin patch open to the public. Also, if you are looking to help out and volunteer in the community these pumpkin patches are all labors of love that raise money for a good cause. So contact the churches to see if they could use your help!

If you know of any other location of a pumpkin patch, please share in the comments!
