Halloween isn't the same if you don't visit at least one pumpkin patch or fall festival, one of our favorite places is MacDonald's Ranch located in Scottsdale,Arizona. MacDonald's Ranch is located at 26540 N. Scottsdale Road Scottsdale,Az 85255. They are open year round for trail riding on horses, Stagecoach rides, and Cookouts they are also open seasonally from October 1st to October 31st offering a fun pumpkin patch for families.
The pumpkin patch is a great place to spend family time and it is perfect for young kids because of everything they offer. They have cow milking, duck races, conk the crow, pedal car races, horse rides, face paintings and more! All of their games were in working order and everyone playing them seemed to be enjoying themselves. Their petting zoo is the best kept petting zoo I've ever visited, you can really tell they care about their animals and the experience you have at the ranch. To get back to where you can select a pumpkin to take home you get onto a hay ride which takes you back to where there is a lovely display of pumpkins set up for you to look through for that perfect pumpkin. Pumpkins are $4-$12 depending on the size, they have a handy plywood board that you can try to fit the pumpkins through to see how much they cost. Hungry? They have a Blazing BBQ pit where you can grab lunch, a Kettle corn stand. Over all the ranch is highly enjoyable, I do suggest going early though because the parking spots will fill up fast. It is $10 per person to get in an worth every penny for building memories with your family.
