Chicago Area Pumpkin Patch Guide 2014

Chicago Area Pumpkin Patch Guide 2014 - Toddling Around Chicagoland

October is all about the arrival of fall and Halloween. I’ve compiled a huge guide of Chicago Area Pumpkin Patches so you can find the one just right for your family. Admission prices do NOT include the cost of pumpkins. I do my best to be sure the information is current, accurate information, but it’s always a good idea to double check the website or call before you go.
