2003 Pumpkin Patch Review

The Pumpkin Patch
3178 Il. Route 173
Caledonia, IL 61011
Date of Review: 09/14/03

The Pumpkin Patch is an outstanding family-oriented event.  With their huge pumpkin along the side of the road and highly visible signage, you can’t miss this seasonal attraction.  The pleasant staff and small community surroundings provide a nice family-friendly atmosphere.  There is ample parking, as well as plenty of picnic tables and paved pathways to make your visit more enjoyable.   There is also a free petting zoo, along with numerous activities for children, including a slide, pony rides and a Kiddy Korn Maze (which is smaller than the main corn maze).   And I can’t forget to mention pumpkins.  They have a wide variety of pumpkins for sale.  The Pumpkin Patch also has several wagons available, that patrons can use to transport their pumpkins back to the parking area.

The centerpiece of the Pumpkin Patch is the barn. Inside  you will find a costume shop, gift shop, bakery and the Pumpkin Cafe.  In the costume shop they have a wide variety of costumes, while the gift shop has everything from scented candles & crafts to Halloween music CDs.  In the bakery you can buy fresh-baked cookies, pies, as well as cider, pumpkin donuts and other baked goods.  The Pumpkin Café is a great place to have a snack and take a break.

One of their main attractions is The Haunted Shed, which is appropriate for Halloween fans of all ages. The Shed is filled with numerous static scenes, featuring creatures like the Bride of Frankenstein, skeletons, and other ghoulish characters.  With spooky music soundtracks playing and eerie multi-colored lighting, the Haunted Shed really puts you in the mood for Halloween! 

The main attraction at The Pumpkin Patch is their enormous cornfield maze.  The maze is set in a 7 acre corn field.  There are more than two miles of walking paths, carved out of the cornfield, in the shape of a scarecrow’s face. With its multiple paths and dead ends, this maze will keep you guessing! A person could easily spend more than an hour just trying to find their way out.   Posted periodically throughout the maze are various amusing signs, each with original artwork & clever quips, letting you know if you are on the right track or just going in circles.  When I saw the same sign three times, I knew I had better take another path if I wanted to get out of there!  With an admission price of only $6.00, the cornfield maze is quite a bargain.  

With activities for all ages, this attraction has something for everyone.  I highly recommend this event.
