Aloun Farms: Pumpkin Patch
Hawaiian Pumpkin Patch
Yesterday I went to Aloun Farms for their annual pumpkin patch and festivities! It is Hawaii's largest pumpkin patch and is full of SO many fun things! They have lots of great activities for little ones, but I was still having a blast as a big kid! There is nothing like a good old fashion pumpkin patch.
To start they offer over 150 acres of pumpkins, sunflowers, corn and more! The month is almost over so they fields were pretty picked through, but their is still plenty to choose from! Especially on Mt. Ewa it is a giant pumpkin mountain full of beauties!
We made the day a family affair by bringing Rashawn's siblings along! It was there first time ever at a pumpkin patch, and despite the heat they had a great time!
They charge based on the size of your pumpkin starting at $2 for the baby ones and up to $15 for the extra large! Admission into the patch is $3 per person unless you are military you get in for free! Also if you donate food and clothes you can get in for free, more information here. Once inside there is so much to do! Mini rides, mechanical bulls, petting zoo, hay rides, food, great music, sunflowers, and lots of games! The hay rides are free everything else needs to be purchased.
Fall is one of the best seasons during the year because Pumpkin everything! If your anything like me you wait all year for Starbuck PSL and pumpkin muffins. It is the best! Even in Hawaii the Pumpkins put you right in the fall mood.
We decided to keep our day pretty low-key enjoying the pumpkin picking! It was pretty hot out so we just listened to the music and watched everyone else enjoy all the activities! And who doesn't love taking pictures with pumpkins?!
The pumpkin patch is open on Saturday and Sunday from 8:30 am until 5:00 pm.
Besides the pumpkin patch you can take hay rides, see a sunflower field, and do lots of activities at the entrance area. They also have live music and some food to enjoy here.
I recommend bringing lots of water becuase it is HOT! They do have a few shady tents but they are very crowded. Also bring wipes or hand sanitizer, they have a wash station but the line is very long so its nice to have your own.
Jevon is always brining smiles to our faces with his crazy dance moves and energetic personality! Classic whip and pumpkin pick :)
Out of the whole patch, he is the best pick :)
While wearing your favorite shoes might be great for the Gram, it won't be for your shoes! The fields are very dusty and dirty so I recommend wearing an older pair you don't mind getting a little messy.
We all picked out our own pumpkin because I knew we were going to participate in some good old fashion Pumpkin Carving!
We wanted to take Rashawn's siblings to carve pumpkins right away! It was their first time and they were loving it! We just went to a near by park and brought our tools and trash bags and got to it! It is one of my FAVORITE things to do every year, so stay tuned for my pumpkin carving post :)
The final products! They all did great for their first time and considering the kitchen tools I gave them to use they did pretty darn good!
Happy Pumpkin Picking!
