In addition to pumpkins, bales of hay, colorful mums, other fall decorations and baked goods could be purchased, while games like a pumpkin ring toss, jack-o-lantern bean bag toss and a fish pond were enjoyed by the younger crowd.
Children had their pictures taken with the Pumpkin Lady or on bales of hay with fall decorations surrounding them. A face painting booth was also part of the fun.
Richmond Hill resident Scott Novinski and his family came out to enjoy the games and, of course, the Pumpkin Patch, he said.
