With Halloween just a few days away, many of us may still be undecided on how we will make this occasion memorable yet safe for our children whilst adhering to the new provincial health guidelines.
For the last three pumpkin patches, I’ve selected three notable patches across our Greater Vancouver region in hopes that one will catch your eye for some Halloween Day fun.
First up, The Chilliwack Corn Maze may be most well known in The Valley, but did you know that there’s also another lesser known pumpkin patch and amusement facility in the Fraser Valley?
Petey’s Pumpkin Patch is a great place to visit for children of all ages. They have a train ride down to the pumpkin patch (with with a small petting zoo for the little ones) and a haunted open-air maze along with interactive games for the older kids.
If your son is a fan of the Dog Man series like mine, they will find the greatest joy in heading to Petey’s Pumpkin Patch as they share the same moniker of the main villain in the series.
