Even if Austin’s 80-degree weather is making fall feel like a long summer, pumpkin patches will still be sprouting all this week! Grab your friends and family and head out to enjoy the pumpkins before the patches close. You can pick out your favorite pumpkins to decorate or carve, bring a camera for a photo shoot, and enjoy one of this season’s greatest traditions!
