From the second we pulled up to Kuwahara pumpkin patch I could tell it was going to be a hit with my 3 year old, Liam. He was giddy the moment that he saw the blowup decorations outside each of the various pumpkin patches. This pumpkin patch offers lots for kiddos to love and many spots to snap some fun photos.
First, we walked through the traditional, main pumpkin patch and checked out each of the covered, themed pumpkin patches. My kiddos loved the inflatable tunnel in the back of the Frankenstein’s Cemetery patch and I loved the hanging plants in The Nightmare Before Christmas patch. They also have a Cinderella’s Castle pumpkin patch with a Cinderella actress who is there every day. I tried to get Liam to take a photo with her but he wasn’t having it. However, My 16 month old, Parker, loved Cinderella. He’d walk up to her and say ‘hi’, then shyly walk back to me, smiling the whole time. I’ve got a little flirt on my hands.
I was impressed with the amount and selection of pumpkins they have. If there’s a pumpkin you’ve been dreaming of I’d be surprised if you couldn’t find it here, it’s definitely one of the best selections I’ve seen.
In addition to their awesome pumpkin selection, Kuwahara Farm pumpkin patch also offers many fun extras; all included with the purchase a full sized pumpkin. They have moon bounces and slides, 3 different corn mazes (rumor has it, one is haunted so heads up on that if you’ve got little ones).
They have two corn pits, a bigger one for older kids and a little kiddy pool sized one for the toddlers (I’d say kiddos under 2). Parker didn’t quite understand why I placed him in a pool full of corn kernels and he kept trying to empty them out of the pool, but it was nice to have an area for him where I wasn’t stressed about him getting trampled by lots of older kids.
In addition, to Cinderella they also have Star Wars actors at the pumpkin patch daily. We loved watching the friendly storm troopers groove to music and Liam was all for a photo with them as soon as he got the chance.
These characters are also part of various shows, which are included with the purchase of your pumpkin. We stayed for the Jedi show and enjoyed watching the Jedi save Cinderella from Kylo Ren. Before we left they were announcing that a scary show was about to start (giving a heads up to parents of little kids) so they definitely have a few different shows happening during the evening hours.
You’ll want to plan on spending a few hours at this pumpkin patch, there is so much to see and do and your kiddos are not going to want to leave. Even Liam, who rarely fights me when it’s time to leave, wanted to stay just a little bit longer.
Also, you’ll want to check out the yummy jams, honey and apples they have available as well as the concessions they sell. I’ll be back before the season is over to try their hot dog wrapped in bacon and their fresh caramel apples.
Kuwahara Farm pumpkin patch is one you definitely need to check out before the end of October, your kids will thank you!
- Grab a wheelbarrow and pick out/purchase your pumpkins before heading to the activities area. Also, load them in your car before starting any activities so you don’t have to keep an eye on them or lug them around with you.
