Pumpkins in a pumpkin patch.

Best Places to Get a Pumpkin in Central Indiana

As the air grows crisp and the leaves assume new hues, what screams fall more than visiting a pumpkin patch (well, besides getting your tickets for the Monster MASKarade)? A trip to your local pumpkin patch is sure to delight kids and adults alike thanks to activities like pony rides, pumpkin decorating, petting zoos, corn mazes and more.

The Children's Museum Guild witches put together a list of four local pumpkin patches and included information on location, hours, admission and activities. Be sure to check with the pumpkin patch of your choosing to plan for any social distancing or mask requirements ahead of your visit. And if you want to ensure you have a memorable Halloween this year, be sure to get your tickets to Monster MASKarade at The Children's Museum!
