Update: The giveaway has closed. The winner of the giveaway is Dawn. Thank you all for entering. 

September is almost over. Can you believe it? It seems like this month just flew by. It also means that Halloween is just around the corner, which just so happens to be my favorite holiday! We have a lot of Halloween traditions in our family, and one of our favorite ones is visiting the Irvine Park Railroad Pumpkin Patch. This weekend we had the opportunity to head to the park, have a ton of fun, and of course pick out a pumpkin.

It's my daughter's 9th visit to the pumpkin patch! She started as a baby!

It’s my daughter’s 10th visit to the pumpkin patch! She started as a baby!

We had a great time visiting the patch. The kids rode the train, went on a hayride, bounced in a bouncy house, rode bikes, got lost in a maze, and of course ate some yummie treats.

This is Irvine Park Railroad’s 10th year of putting on the pumpkin patch. I think with every year that goes by, the patch only gets better. We’ve been coming since the very 1st one, when my daughter was only a few months old. It’s definitely a family tradition.

The Pumpkin Patch is open from now until Halloween. It’s open 7 days a week, starting at 10am. Entrance to the patch is free and tickets for activities/train rides are $5 each. There are plenty  of spots to take great photos and so much to do with the family.

It’s giveaway time! We’re giving away a prize package to one lucky reader.

Win 4 tickets – which can be used to ride the train or participate in Pumpkin Patch activities, 1 Wheel Fun Rentals bike rental, 1 Wheel Fun Rentals Paddle Boat Rental.

All you have to do is leave a comment letting me know what you love the most about Halloween. That’s it! Winner will be chosen at random. Giveaway ends on October 1st at 11:59pm. Good luck!

Irvine Park Railroad Pumpkin Patch is now open!

I think if you read this site on a regular basis, you know that I’m a fan of Irvine Park Railroad. One of my favorite times of the year is Halloween and heading to Irvine Park Railroad to pick a pumpkin and participate in the fun activities has now become a tradition for our family.

There are plenty of places for photo opportunities and the pumpkin patch has great size pumpkins at a pretty reasonable price. We usually head there twice during the season. 

This year’s Pumpkin Patch activities include:  Train rides, hay rides, a haunted house, a hay maze, pony rides, a moon bounce, carnival games, John Deere tractor racers, face painting (weekends only), picture stands, great food and The Orange County Zoo. A new activity for this year is panning for gold.

The Irvine Park Railroad Pumpkin Patch is open daily from
September 18th through October 31st
Weekdays 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
Weekends 10:00 am – 6:00 pm

Admission into the Pumpkin Patch is free. Prices for all other activities vary; please visit for additional information and costs

We are going to have a fun giveaway next week to the patch. Stay tuned for details!

Irvine Park Railroad Pumpkin Patch and Giveaway

Happy Sunday! I still can’t get over the fact that is summer almost a thing of the past and that fall is here (it doesn’t feel that way with this weather), that is until this weekend. My family had the opportunity to visit the Irvine Park Railroad Pumpkin Patch this weekend and we had such a great time.

We are big fans of the Irvine Park Railroad and love their seasonal events! I have to say that the pumpkin patch is my absolute favorite event. Every single member of my family had fun this weekend. Admission to the pumpkin patch is free (you do however have to pay an admission fee to enter the park $3-$5, although we didn’t pay a fee because we arrived around 4pm). One of my favorite things about this pumpkin patch are the very reasonable price for pumpkins and activities. You can find a pumpkin to fit your budget, from $3 for a smaller pumpkin to $22 for a super duper large one.

It’s also the perfect place to take Halloween pictures and also spend quality time as a family. We stayed until closing and had such a good time. We went on a hay ride, walked through a giant hay maze, toured a haunted house, the kiddos took part in the John Deere tractor races and finally no visit is complete to Irvine Park without a train ride. We had so much fun and I promise that you will too. The best part is that admission to the pumpkin patch is free as well as touring the Haunted House, Hay Maze and dozens of cute picture stands. The patch also features carnival games, face painting and so much more!

The Irvine Park Railroad Pumpkin Patch runs from September 19th to November 1st. It’s open 7 days a week from 10am to 5pm on weekdays and 10am to 6pm on weekends. Pack a picnic and head down soon before the crowds arrive. I recommend heading there early in the day or late in the afternoon to avoid crowds.

Irvine Park Railroad has graciously offered a 15 pack of tickets for one lucky family to enjoy at the pumpkin patch. It’s a $60 value and sure to make your visit to the patch extra special. To enter all you have to do is leave a comment under this post. You have until next Saturday night to enter. Good luck and head to Irvine Park Railroad for a fantastic time.

Almost forgot, I extended the Zula Patrol giveaway until next Friday. You still have time to enter if you have not already done so!
