To me, one of the benefits of being a parent is having kids to take to The Pumpkin Patch in Caledonia, Illinois each year. It was one of my favorite places to go each Fall as a child, and as an adult, I have continued to visit the Patch each year even when I didn't have kids. So, why do I love The Pumpkin Patch so much? Let me count the ways...

If you've never visited The Lindberg Pumpkin Patch before, I highly suggest going there on the weekend for your first trip. It may be busier, but that is when special attractions like a DJ, face painting, and all of their inflatables are happening, but honestly, any day of the week is a great time to enjoy The Pumpkin Patch!
