Pumpkin Patches in Tulsa
As we get deeper into the fall season the weather gets colder and we draw ever closer to the spookiest day of the year, Halloween! As the smell of pumpkin spiced latte fills the air, Tulsa residents begin to decorate their yards with haunting ghosts, scary ghouls, and other spooky outdoor Halloween decorations. But, no yard would be complete without a good jack-o-lantern!
Before you and your family can start carving your jack-o-lantern, you’ll first have to pick up a pumpkin. There are many pumpkin patches in-and-around Tulsa to pick up a nice, orange winter squash.
Ferguson Superstore has put together a list of Tulsa-area pumpkin patches the whole family can enjoy!
