Every year at this time, the Desert Botanical Garden has an interactive Pumpkin Patch that is a big hit with kids. Being a "big kid" at heart, I usually go to take a few pictures. They start with a "hay ride" that takes you out to the patch and then there is music, games and contests for the kids to enjoy along with a huge selection of pumpkins. All kids under 12 can take a free pumpkin home with them. This year they also had a group of expert pumpkin carvers who were at work on these pumpkins. These guys do a pretty good job of creating some scary faces.
