Escape to the Corn Maze
For me, once I place that first pumpkin out, it’s definitely the fall season. This year, I was so delighted when I saw the pumpkins at the grocery store I immediately bought one of the small ones for our coffee table centerpiece. For my family, going to the local pumpkin patch and corn maze is just tradition. With Halloween right around the corner, this past weekend we figured we better get there before all the pumpkins sold out!
With it being so close to the holiday, there really weren’t too many perfectly plump and round pumpkins left. But! I did find a pretty cute gourde I couldn’t resist having. He now is sitting on my table patiently waiting for Thanksgiving where he will fit better in with the décor.
The end of our evening concluded with everyone charging into the corn maze. It may be my imagination, but I am certain that this year’s corn maze is double the size of what it has been in the past. The number of twists and turns was insane!
My entire family loves the maze, especially when the opportunity to scare one another arises. I don’t mind the maze, but I tend to get a little claustrophobic if it’s been too long and I can’t find my way out.
Although we stuck with the corn maze, the pumpkin patch offers lots of activities for families and children of all ages. There is a bounce house, hayride, petting zoo, mechanical bull, and even a paint ball area that my cousins were dying to get to.
Whether you just need a pumpkin to carve or are looking for a good activity for an October evening, I definitely recommend heading out to the Ferrari Farm Pumpkin Patch here in Reno.
The pumpkin patch is open September 27th - October 31st, hours are Sunday - Thursday 9:30am - 8:00pm and Friday - Saturday 9:30am - 10:00pm.
