Pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere! Looking for a pumpkin patch in Spokane? The choices are plentiful! Probably the most exciting choice, especially if you have children, is to head up to Green Bluff and visit one of the many small farms that participate in the Apple Festival every weekend through the end of October. . . think apples AND pumpkins. The Green Bluff Growers aim to please and entertain the family with mazes, animals, live music, food, crafts and more! There are plenty of pumpkin patches and apples to be picked!
If you prefer a less festive and busy pumpkin picking experience, just head up during the week for a casual stroll through the farms. Check out the Green Bluff website to make sure your favorite farms will be open and have what you are looking for.
If you are not into visiting the actual farm, you can still get a great local pumpkin by visiting the Spokane Farmers’ Market on Saturday or Wednesday morning. They have plenty of big Jack-o-Lantern size pumpkins along with those awesome little pie pumpkins. While you are there, you can pick up some great local veggies for the coming week! Nothing better than fresh, local and even organic if you choose! The market is located on the corner of 5th Avenue and Division at the bottom of the South Hill . . . need more info? Visit the Market’s website!
Of course, if you want to take the easy route, you can always choose your pumpkin out of the big box in front of any Spokane grocery store. Just be careful you don’t fall in . . . trust me, I will be there with my camera ready to blog about you if you do! :) Of course, I will help you out after I take the picture!
So, once you select that perfect pumpkin, what do you plan to do with it? You can carve it . . . eat it . . . or you can RACE IT! The Great Pumpkin Race will take place on the South Hill of Spokane on Saturday, October 29, at 12:00 noon! (registration starts at 11:00).The one thing you must remember when choosing your pumpkin is that the pumpkin and wheels can weigh no more than 12 lbs. For the rest of the rules, location information, and how you can help with this event, check out the Great Pumpkin Race website!
