Pumpkin Patches in the GTA




Nothing says fall (or Halloween) quite like a pumpkin. When these festive gourds start appearing on front stoops and in windows across the Greater Toronto Area, you know autumn has arrived. This year, skip the grocery store pumpkins and take a day trip to one of GTA's pumpkin patches, where you're sure to run into more fall fun, including barnyard animals, tractor rides, hay and corn mazes, and more!
