So, even though I don't see yellow and orange leaves falling from the trees - during the month of October, I'm on the lookout for pumpkin patches and other places to take my little "pumpkins" to celebrate the Fall season.
Tucker Hill is a fancy schmancy neighborhood in North McKinney that hosts Pumpkinville, which boasts a sweet little pumpkin patch & fun Fall activities for FREE from October 17 - 31st.
We went for the first time this year, and frolicked through a beautiful Fall setting on the side of a grassy hill (entrance to the neighborhood). There are tons of photo opportunities - a little shed with rocking chair and beautiful (pretty sure professionally designed) sprays of pumpkins and other fall gourds and the like to take a lovely Fall family photo by.
It's not a REAL pumpkin field, so the pumpkins are not actually growing. More of a "re-created" pumpkin patch, but there are tons of choices from tiny little pumpkins to huge ones scattered around, making it look very real, along with some old farm equipment that also is great for seasonal photos.
There's a little toddler sized hay maze that my kiddo had fun traversing, as well as a cute pumpkin decorated croquet field and bocce ball.
At 10:30am we went on a little tractor-pulled hay ride around the neighborhood, which was fun! They have FREE hay rides Friday & Saturdays, 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Sundays, 1:30 to 4 p.m.
