Pumpkin season is among us! Yes, even us Floridians.

Although we don’t necessarily get that perfectly chilly weather and the gorgeous foliage like our northern friends, it doesn’t mean they get to have all the fall fun. There are plenty of ways for us Lakelanders to indulge in the iconic fall traditions here, too. 

The cusp of autumn around the corner means pumpkin everything, and there are plenty of ways to join in on the festivities (aside from lighting those pumpkin-scented candles and ordering the coveted Pumpkin Spice Latte).

Check out these three upcoming pumpkin patches:
