October is an exciting month for many with so many activities to look forward to. Across the United States every year there is always a Pumpkin patch and/or Corn maze to be found. In Hawaii we celebrate the pumpkin patch somewhat the same with a bit of Hawaiian style to it. It has become not only a family tradition for some but also an opportunity to create new memories, enjoy live local entertainment, good foods, arts and crafts, purchase fresh produce, and so much more.
Here is a list of this year's pumpkin patches that are open across the Hawaiian Islands with various activities. Some are open every day and some only on weekends. Bring the kids and enjoy this event for the whole family.
Kula Country Farm Pumpkin Patch
Every year in October, Kula Country Farms opens up its pumpkin patch for everyone to come and pick their very own pumpkin for Halloween. It has turned out to be a family tradition for some as they bring their children up there to enjoy themselves in the excitement of finding their very own pumpkins. Pumpkins come in many different sizes and shapes. You can purchase a tiny one for as little as 50 cents up to $20 for larger sizes. There are also many photo opportunities for those who love to take pictures and a corn maze too.
The farm is open everyday except Mondays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays. Saturdays and Sundays they close at 4 p.m. While there check out their fresh produce, and various food vendors, arts and crafts, and farm animals as well.
