Please note: As recommended by BC’s provincial health officials, if you choose to participate in events or leisure activities outside of your home, please adhere to COVID-19 health and safety measures, including proper physical distancing and frequent hand washing. If you are sick, please stay home.

Spooky season is here, meaning many of the Lower Mainland’s favourite pumpkin patches are open for the season.

So grab your sweater, bring a friend, and try to find the cutest little gourd in the patch. Keep in mind that many of these pumpkin patches are incorporating coronavirus safety precautions, so visits might look a little different compared to previous years.

Here is a selection of great pumpkin patches where you can get in the fall spirit.

Happy picking!
