It doesn’t quite feel like fall in San Antonio, but as soon as September arrived, instantly all brains went straight to PUMPKINS! Social media posts about pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin donuts started popping up, and we realized it is time to share our sixth annual guide to pumpkin patches in San Antonio!
There are plenty of local pumpkin patches that are fairly easily accessible and many are free. For those looking for a pumpkin patch with live vines, you’ll need to take a drive. (Click on the “Worth the Drive” tab below.)
Take some pictures while you’re out among the pumpkins and gourds and share them in our Alamo City Moms Blog Community + Conversation Facebook group! Happy pumpkin season!
