Pumpkin patches: schools, grocery stores, and churches often have patches, and sometimes you might spot a pumpkin or two among the other squash at a farmers market, but there are also organizations that host them all over the Bay Area. ABC Tree Farm’s Pick of the Patch Pumpkins has many throughout the area.

And there are plenty of Haunted Houses/Mazes/Walks around the Bay Area. Check out the website San Francisco Haunted Houses for a list.
