Autumn is the only season where pumpkins are judged by their personality as well as by their performance in the swimsuit competition. Get to know fall's finest with today's Groupon: for $5, you get one $10 pumpkin at Big Wave Dave's Pumpkin Patch’s locations in Santa Barbara and Ventura.
Big Wave Dave's Pumpkin Patch outfits front stoops in fall finery with a showcase of locally grown organic pumpkins and regales tots with a bevy of free games and prizes. Customers peruse the orange orbs beneath an all-weather tent that repels rain and migrating autumn leaves, selecting future jack-o'-lanterns from the patch's assortment of $10 basketball-size gourds.
The outdoor pumpkin emporium equips novice etchers with a variety of carving kits, candles, and stencils to surgically enhance unexpressive spheres with flickering grins. Kids can compete for prizes in a series of autumnal games or vault over invisible hurdles in the Santa Barbara location's complimentary bounce house.
