Family Pumpkin Patch & Fall Festival at SDCDM!

San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum (SDCDM), formerly the Escondido Children’s Museum, is currently hosting a Family Pumpkin Patch & Fall Festival at their new location on North Broadway, in Escondido. Both the Family Pumpkin Patch & Fall Festival sound like they’ll be a lot of fun!

The Family Pumpkin Patch is open from 10am-4pm, Tuesday-Sunday, through November 4th, and is FREE for Members or with General Admission. Kids age 0-12 are FREE in October! The Family Pumpkin Patch is a great area to snap some family pumpkin patch photos.

Each Saturday this Fall the Family Pumpkin Patch features family garden programs (10am-Noon), seasonal pumpkins available for purchase and carving, and a live music series including Bluegrass, folk, country, and other local acoustic groups from 1pm-3pm.
