Tips for Pumpkin Patches In Reno-Sparks and Beyond
I’ve been taking my kids to the pumpkin patches in Reno since my oldest was 8 months old. It has become an annual event and we always end up going more than once!
We have such a great time and the kids never want to leave any of the pumpkin patches in Reno and the surrounding areas.
Here are some tips for making the most of your trip at any of the pumpkin patches in Reno and beyond.
Get up and go, get there first thing in the morning, or during lunch hour, on week days after school is a great time too. We have found these times to be the least crowded.
Bring cash, odds are your kid will have a last-minute change of heart and want to ride that pony or go through the corn maze.
Have your kids wear durable boots or even rain boots. Be prepared for dust/dirt as pumpkin patches are typically very dusty.
Bring warm layers, the pumpkin patches are located in open areas, so it can get windy!
Lastly, take pictures! You’ll enjoy looking back and remembering this busy season!
