October half term means time to visit a pumpkin patch for us! Our local patch is at Avon Valley Adventure & Wildlife Park. Wellies on we were ready for the mud and thankfully the rain held off for our morning visit. I have to say I was really impressed, tons of displays and plenty of space to keep all the visitors happy. And a lot of pumpkins!
What to expect
You need to book tickets in advance. I would recommend going early, we were there for the first slot of the day and it was getting busier as we left a couple of hours later. There are plenty of photo opportunities and lots to see and keep the kids entertained.
After going through the large pumpkin patch you will come to the fairground and marketplace. The fairground was great for the kids who had fun on the bumper cars and planes. It was roughly £3 a ride.
The marketplace includes various activity stalls (charges apply) and food stalls where we picked up some drinks and churros that we ate undercover whilst enjoying some live music. We also had fun watching some characters dancing for us.
My eldest took charge of our wheelbarrow and selecting the best pumpkins. We paid £11 for three good pumpkins. My youngest loved the fairground rides and finding a piano to play in the middle of the pumpkin patch.
A fun filled family morning to kick off our half term. Have you been? Let me know how you got on in the comments.
