Pumpkin Patches to visit this October

Just because Thanksgiving is over doesn’t mean you have to stop with the fall festivities! Get ready for Halloween by visiting a local pumpkin patch!  Find your perfect pumpkin for carving and make your weekend fun from start to finish.

Pumpkin Patch
Davidson Orchards Country Village – Pumpkin Festival

  • Held every weekend in October, Davidson Orchards Country Village’s Pumpkin Festival is not to be missed. Not only can you pick your own pumpkin, but the youngsters will enjoy family farm tours on the Johnny Popper Orchard Train!  You can also enjoy apple treats fresh from this season’s harvest – don’t forget to try the Apple Cider Donuts!  Pumpkins and rides are a flat rate of $9, no matter the size of the pumpkin.

McMillan Pumpkin Patch

  • Open throughout October (weather dependent), McMillan Pumpkin Patch is another must visit. There are hayrides, slingshot and a corn maze on offer!  Admission is free, but the activities are paid for.  What’s also great about this pumpkin patch is that pumpkins are priced depending on size – everything from $1 to $25! Open from 10am till 6pm Thurs to Sat, and 10am to 5pm Sun to Wed.  Which pumpkin will you choose?
  • Located on 3690 Berard Rd, Kelowna – just a 40 minute drive from La Casa Cottages.

Armstrong Pumpkin Patch

  • Armstrong Pumpkin Patch is open from dawn to dusk (as stated on their website) EVERY day in October! This small, simple pumpkin patch is bound to fill the whole family with joy.  There are lots of pumpkins for you to pick yourself, as you would expect, but they also have other fall favourites on sale such as decorative corn, squash and gourds.  Deck out your house in orange and yellow with this beautiful selection of harvest goods!

Even although no one is ever happy about trading in their favourite swimsuit for their business causal get up, and giving up long days of lounge in the sun for endless hours stuck in the office, somehow most of us still love fall. And fall in the Okanagan is nothing short of spectacular. Here’s how the fashion experts suggest you make the most of the crisp autumn weather.

  1. Suede: boots, jackets, cardigans, suede is coming back in a big way from booties to t-shirts, the soft, matte fabric has made it’s way from a utilitarian cloth used by the First Nations in the early 1900’2 to keep warm to a modern day trend for day to day wear.
  2. Leather: contrary to popular belief, leather jackets are not only for burly men on Harley Davidsons. The little leather jacket is perfect for that in between fall weather for men and women alike.
  3. Denim: it’s simple. Everyone loves jeans. We all have our favourite pair of denim jeans. With many cuts and styles from bootlegged to distressed to denim shorts and jackets, it goes with everything and its guaranteed to keep you arm in the crisp fall air.
  4. Plaid: when you think fall fashion almost everyone thinks plaid. From scarves to button downs to flannel jackets, plaid is a quick and easy way to tie together your fall look. And the colours scream ‘hay ride and pumpkin carving’.
  5. Sportswear: go ahead, rock your lulus and hoodie to the mall. It’s fall, comfort and warmth are the key components to staying in style while preparing for the incoming snow season.
