Summer is almost on its way out and the hint of fall is in the air already. Halloween is almost upon us and the time is ripe to make a road trip to Orange County. Whether you’re travelling solo or with your little ones, OC has a lot of fun-filled, spooky events for the upcoming Halloween festivities.
This Orange County Fall list of things to do will help you get in the spirit of the season!
Irvine Park Railroad Pumpkin Patch
What’s Halloween without carving up some pumpkins? The Irvine Park Pumpkin Patch is one of the more famed pumpkin patches in Orange County. There are a hundred of different sized pumpkins available for sale. Plus, there are also hay rides, carnival games, pony rides, tractor rides, cookie decorating, and more fun-filled activities.
Cal Poly Pomona Pumpkin Festival
Fall and pumpkin patches are pretty much synonymous and the Cal Poly Pomona Pumpkin Festival is the season’s biggest dose of Halloween pumpkins. Lining up the fields as far as the eye can see; the pumpkin patch remains as unique as ever. The annual festival offers food booths, games, a corn maze, and even a petting zoo!
Annual Discovery Cube Pumpkin Launch
Another fun Fall thing to try in OC is to attend Discovery Cube’s Annual Pumpkin Launch. The event is quite a sight with flying pumpkins in the air. Many teams compete to break the record for the most pumpkins launches, as well as the farthest launched and those closest to the target.
Apple Picking in Oak Glen
Ah, the fresh taste of newly-pressed apple cider! Apple picking in Oak Glen around the Fall season is an yearly tradition taken up by many families. Head up to Oak Glen and pick ripe red apples from around 30+ farmlands in the 5-mile radius. You can also press your own apple cider and enjoy it with the kids.
The Great Park Balloon
The iconic Great Park Balloon in Orange County’s Great Park is another must-see attraction. In the month of October, you can see a big, orange balloon Jack-O-Lantern flying high in the sky. You can head over there anytime you like, have a picnic, take a stroll in the park, and remember to take a picture in front of the balloon!
Spooky Science Exhibit
Want Halloween to be both a fun and a learning experience for the little ones? Then make sure to head over to the Discovery Science Center for their Spooky Science Exhibit. The kids will get to learn interesting facts about Halloween, pumpkins, and join in on many fun Halloween-related activities.
