The season of spooky celebrations is here! While there is no dearth of spine-tingling events such as haunted house tours and creepy costume parties to take part in, the other side of Halloween celebrations is filled with light-hearted activities such as pumpkin picking, making jack-o’-lanterns, trick-or-treating, apple bobbing, etc. Although picking pumpkins and carving them into jack-o’-lanterns is one of the most common Halloween traditions, pumpkin picking can be enjoyed throughout the fall. So, get ready with those fall boots and head to these pumpkin patches in Los Angeles for a great pumpkin picking experience.
