Pumpkins are popular in South Florida, for decorating, eating, carving and photo opportunities. We won't find them growing in farmers' fields in South Florida, but you can find pumpkin patches at festivals, in parking lots, and at farms.
If you're looking for the perfect place to pluck your pumpkins, Broward offers a variety of pumpkin patch venues and events.
