As the days quickly shorten and the nights grow cooler, everything pumpkin is on everyone’s mind. Pumpkin patches and corn mazes are a popular activity this time of year and there is no short supply here in Northwest Arkansas.

Whether you’re looking for a family outing, to shake up date night, fall photo opps, or  autumn decor for the house and yard there is something for everyone. Hay rides, bonfires, and ponies abound!

Here are some of our favorites. Click on the links for more info.

Just up the road in Southwest City, MO, Make the Right Choices  is offering half priced admission this weekend and next. That's $6 for all activities! We love the slide.

Also opening this Friday is Ozark Corn Maze with 3 separate mazes in Cave Springs. They will also feature pony rides, an animal train, and a petting zoo.

Kicking off the season with its grand opening last weekend, Farmland Adventures in Springdale will be open through November 5.

The pumpkin patch at McGarrah Farms, a longtime local favorite located in Pea Ridge, will open Sept 24.

It's apple picking season at Vanzant Fruit Farms, also in Springdale, and the October Pumpkin Patch is right around the corner!
