Bay Area Pumpkin Patch

Hi There! Woooh….it has been a MINUTE! It’s been pretty hectic here on both The Trendy Block and Wander The Bay Blogs. I’ve been trying to stay active via Instagram while I work on some upcoming projects including some blog posts…stay tuned! As always, thank you for joining me on these journeys.

October is such a fun time in the Bay Area! Street fairs, fall festivities, and great weather is just part of the reasons to stay local. A fun activity for friends, family, and all ages are Pumpkin Patches! I recently just read an article about how Instagram has increased the number of visitors to pumpkin patches because I mean a fall feed is essential…amirite! Well here in the Bay you can wander your way to a TON of different pumpkin patches and wanted to share a few below! Let me know if you go to one and your thoughts!
