Tampa Bay Pumpkin Patches and Events – Prepare to Carve
Here is my list of my favorite Pumpkin Patches Tampa Bay visits– and are they fun. Tampa Bay loves their pumpkin patches like no other area. It may have to do with the fact that we really do not get a proper Fall so we have to try harder to get that Fall feeling. Granted, this year the weather has been beautiful, it is usually much warmer this time of year. But all weather aside, one cannot help but get into the mood of the season with these great Tampa Bay pumpkin patches to visit.

October 6th-31st, pumpkin patch. Scarecrow Factory, October 23rd and 24th, only. One of the most celebrated and anticipated Pumpkin Patches in the city of St Pete is the Clearview United Pumpkin Patch with Scarecrow Factory. I cannot even tell you how many years the pumpkin patch has been held, but I cannot remember before it. Since our weather does not really get cool here, we natives, know it is officially Fall when Clearview puts the framework up for their pumpkin patch. Prices are pretty good and the selection grows every year. Last year they even had white pumpkins. Oh, and I need to put a tick in your ear, they have a Walk Thru Bethlehem in December.
