Pasadena Pumpkin Patch changes with the seasons. In the spring and summer, it sells fresh fruit. In the winter, families come to choose Christmas trees. But the highlight of its year is fall, when jack-o-lanterns grace every doorstep and pumpkin fills every pie. At this time of year, the pumpkin patch grows and bright orange gourds ripen on the vine, waiting for a pair of hands to pluck it from a bed of hay and decorate it with a spooky face. In addition to pumpkins of all shapes and sizes, the farm offers a variety of fall activities. Pony rides and a petting zoo introduce children to the many creatures that call a farm their home, while towering bouncing slides help mini thrill-seekers locate their lost puppy Waldo before they whiz to the ground.
