It’s hard to believe that the official first day of fall is here – Friday, September 22. That’s right. Summer of 2017 has already come and gone. So long are the pool days and sunscreen. Instead, there will be days sitting by the fire roasting marshmallows. No more bathing suits, shorts and flip-flops. Now it will be scarves, jackets and boots. With the changing of seasons, comes so many other changes as well. It’s really an exciting time. A time to put the previous season in the past and look ahead to the future to new and possibly even more exciting things to come. Changing from summer to fall means cooler temperatures, leaves changing colors, leaves falling from the trees to the ground, lots of football and pumpkins!
Pumpkins are definitely associated with the fall season. It’s one for sure thing that comes to mind when thinking about autumn. There are a number of pumpkin patches located in the Triangle area that make great destinations for people of all ages. Be sure to take advantage of the pumpkin patches nearby and enjoy making new memories that will last a lifetime.
Page Farms is located near Brier Creek in Raleigh and its pumpkin season starts this weekend, September 23. To begin with, it will be open only on the weekends and then starting October 7, it will be open every day of the week. Pages Farms features pumpkin picking, a corn maze, hayride, farm animals, slide and more.
Located just outside of Wake Forest is Hill Ridge Farms. Right now the 2017 Fall Harvest & Pumpkin Festival is underway and will continue through November 11. At Hill Ridge Farms, you’ll find so much to do – visit with the farm animals, go down the slide, let the kids exert energy out on the giant jumping pillow and bounce house, enjoy a hay ride and pick out a pumpkin to take home.
Vollmer Farm is located in Bunn, North Carolina, which is outside of Raleigh heading northeast. In one more week on September 29 it will open for the 2017 fall season. There is loads of fun at Vollmer Farm just waiting for you – a jumping pillow, corn maze, hayride, farm animals, cow barrel train and much, much more.
