With fun photos, hay rides, and picking out the perfect pumpkin, this is a must-do activity this October. Want to visit the best pumpkin patches around? Keep reading to see our complete guide for where to get your pumpkins near Blount County, Alabama.
1. The Great Pumpkin Patch
The Great Pumpkin Patch really has it all and more when it comes to a day of picking pumpkins. Their beautiful red barn welcomes you with the perfect background for photos with hay bales and assorted pumpkins on display.
Before you pick out your pumpkin, you have to stop by the petting zoo where cute farm animals await. They even have pony rides for the kids and a brand-new inflatable park featuring slides, a bouncy pumpkin and bungee run.
When you’re ready to search for your prize pumpkin, ride their Great Pumpkin Patch Train or wagons for a fun new way to travel to the patch and carry your picks easily back to the car.
The Great Pumpkin Patch will have live entertainment, a costume contest and other games and events throughout the month that you won’t want to miss. Keep up with all the upcoming events on their Facebook.
