Nothing screams Fall like a big ole’ pumpkins and corn mazes. I love taking the kids out to the pumpkin patch & winding our way through the mile-high corn fields. There are oodles of options across the Lower Mainland. Here are our top picks for 2017. Be warned, due to the very warm summer the pumpkins are ready now. It could be challenging finding a pumpkin come the end of October!
