The OC Fair/Event Center had the pumpkin patch located in LOT C. Entering the pumpkin patch was free, while parking was $9. All activities and pumpkins varied in price. There was a petting zoo, inflatable bounce houses, obstacle courses, and games. The event started on October 6th - 31st. It’s open on weekdays from 1- 9pm. While on the weekdays it opens at 9am - 9pm. Families with kids ran around the pumpkin patch and jumped around the bounce houses. Kenia Rocha and Lesley Hernandez joined along in the fun. The two girls had the best time taking pictures and just having fun with whatever was brought upon the conversations they we’re having. Walking around the pumpkin patch with them was pretty entertaining actually. Senior at Estancia High School, Kenia Rocha said, “The pumpkin patch was cool, but it didn’t really have a lot of things.” which then again, it could’ve been set up better. It was great but if they added more for young adults, maybe it would be more appealing to them. Lesley Hernandez stated, “The pumpkin patch was fun but they didn’t have many activities.” There were small games, but it was more geared towards a younger crowd.
