Are you hoping to take your family to a pumpkin patch this year? There are many fall attractions that Hampton Roads and Northeast North Carolina have to offer.
NORFOLK, Virginia – AUTHOR’S NOTE: The video above is dated October 2019.
Whether the temperature feels like autumn or not, it is there … and we can decorate and celebrate at least with that in mind.
It is roughly the time of year that pumpkins will show up in grocery stores. They are selling a lot more than we have listed, but we wanted to find some local stores where picking that annual pumpkin could be an experience!
Hay drives, corn mazes, and sunflower fields deserve their time in the spotlight.
