Great Park Pumpkin Harvest
October 26, 2010 by Jamie
This past weekend Bryan and I, along with his mom and siblings, went to the Great Park Pumpkin Harvest which took place at, where else, the Great Park at Irvine. The event included lots of fun things such as a hay maze, wagon rides, a pumpkin patch and pumpkin decorating. Although this event was fun it is heavily geared toward children. I stupidly thought that the phrases “Pumpkin Harvest” and “pumpkin patch” meant there would be an abundance of pumpkins to choose from so I brought my trusty wagon. Unfortunately they only gave one pumpkin to each child who was under 12 years old. Luckily we had my husband’s younger sister there or we would have come home with nothing! Despite this unfortunate pumpkin incident we had a pretty good time, we got to ride in a horse drawn wagon and go trick or treating. Well sort of, we did walk around and get candy from a bunch of different vendors which is pretty cool too. I don’t know if I would go to this event again but I would definitely recommend it to people with kids (under 12 obviously), if you want to go to real pumpkin patch I would go to Cal Poly’s annual Pumpkin Festival.
