With Halloween less than two weeks away, pumpkin patches around the Lower Mainland seem to be in full swing and a popular outing for families with young kids!
Here is our round-up of pumpkin-related fun happening this weekend on the North Shore, as well as surrounding areas (since most of the HUGE pumpkin patches are a bit further afield).
There are also a few popular baby & kids swap meets happening this weekend, not to mention the Sea to Sky Family Fair in Squamish. We’ve got all the details here!
