El Paso Pumpkin Patches for Those Who Don’t Want to Go to a Corn Maze
Now that autumn is officially here and the seasonal decorations are starting to go up perhaps you are on the hunt for pumpkins to carve, paint, or use as front door décor.
The three area corn mazes -- El Paso's Corn Maze, La Union Maze, and Mesilla Valley Maze -- are an excellent place to pick out and buy pumpkins. They have a huge selection, and there are so many activities for the kiddos to run around and do.
But for those looking to bring a gourd or two home without having to pay admission and negotiating the crush of people at the maze, here are a couple of alternatives inside El Paso city limits. Sure, the supermarkets have them and I get the whole convenience thing, but where’s the fun in that?
