Find That Perfectly Shaped Pumpkin In One Of These East Texas Pumpkin Patches
It is official, you can start decorating for fall and for Halloween! Cooler temperatures are on the way for this weekend and it will be a great time to pull those fall decorations out of the hallway closet or attic and once again put them on display.
Then if you need some real stuff to decorate for the fall, like pumpkins, gourds, scarecrows, bales of hay and more, you can find them at an East Texas pumpkin patch. The pumpkin selection this year might not be as great as it has been in the past because of the drought, but the supply should be pretty good because East Texas farmers fared better when it came to late summer rain, unlike those in the panhandle and western part of Texas.
Whether you looking for pumpkins for that front porch display or one to carve up as a jack-o-lantern for Halloween, here is a list of some of the pumpkin patches that are around East Texas.
