Southern California may not get many fall colors, but they will be on display at pumpkin patches opening up throughout the region in coming weeks.

Bright orange pumpkins, bales of hay, corn stalks and sunflowers await visitors at many of the patches, as do carnival rides and games, petting zoos, food and entertainment.

Many of the pumpkin patches have free admission, but most charge extra for the attractions, often with ticket systems or wristbands.

They often charge for pumpkins by the pound.

Some pumpkin patches were open last year during the coronavirus pandemic but with reduced hours or fewer attractions. Many patches have more to offer this year, but their plans could change if state or local governments change their pandemic policies. Check with the venue before you visit.

Here are some of this year’s pumpkin patches around Southern California.
