Arizona is home to the jaw-dropping Grand Canyon, crazy desert wildlife, and very hot summers.
Halloween is upon us with just a little over one week to go. Now is the best time to hit up the pumpkin patches to pick out your perfect gourd. A lot of the pumpkin patches have other activities and fun things to buy. You could buy your pumpkin at the grocery store, but where is the fun in that? You can take your family out for a night on the farm to play games and choose the perfect pumpkin. Pumpkin patches are also great for photo ops with your lover. So get out there already and select the best pumpkin in the pumpkin patch.
Albuquerque offers a wonderful pumpkin patch experience at their Maize Maze. Every Halloween season, Maize Maze is perhaps the funnest pumpkin patch experience in the state. The maze is amazing and the pumpkins are fresh for the picking. It’s fun for the whole family.
After you find the perfect pumpkin, take a trip through their maize maze!
Within the maze, there are checkpoints that will assist visitors to find their way through the maze. Signs with riddles are posted inside the maze to help visitors in their navigation. The major goal of the 2008 Maize Maze is to raise money for the programs at the farm. Service learning programs bring over 1,000 visitors to RGCF each year. The maze also provides food for the migrating birds, Sandhill Cranes and Canada Geese, that live at the farm during the winter. There are informational signs throughout the maze trails to learn about corn, owls, trees, sunflowers, and mazes.
