Halloween in the Bay Area is so much fun, we all wish it lasted longer than a day.

Pumpkin patches are magical because they combine all the smells, tastes, sounds, and sites of the season in one place the entire family can enjoy. Here’s a selection of pumpkin patches from across the Bay Area, where you’re sure to meet the future Jack-o-Lantern of your nightmares!
