Picking the right pumpkin is not just an art, it’s an adventure. Every year, the Desert Botanical Garden has a two-day pumpkin festival with fun for all ages. A short hay-ride in the desert drops you off at the pumpkin patch but, you can only get there after skillfully making your way through the amazing hay bale maze. Once you arrive, you find the ground covered with pumpkins of every size and best of all, if you are under 12 years old, you get to take one home with you. It's a tough decision for those young ones. "Do I go for the big one that my dad will have to carry or do I get a small one that I can carry all the way home?"
