The Rondriso Pumpkin Patch has a bit of everything: mini-pumpkins, hay bales and cornstalks.

Does not matter what age you are, there is so much fun to have.

The pumpkin patch opens on October 1st and runs Monday through Friday from 3 pm to 6 pm and on weekends from 10 am to 6 pm.

It costs $6 per person (aged 2 and up) to enter.

Hayrides to the field are an additional $3 each.

The fun carries on when you take home a pumpkin to carve it, with mixed results.

There are many thrift stores around Surrey but Talize (which sits along the Surrey and Delta border) is a local favourite.

There is no reason to completely stop heading down to the water.

Just pull over a sweater, walk down to the Crescent Coffee House and grab a hot cup of coffee.

Then enjoy the scenic views Crescent Beach has to offer by strolling down the pier and nature trails.

It does not matter what time of year you head down here — it’s always beautiful.
