Happy Sunday everyone!
Well, here we are on the last day of September cruising right along into October. October has always been one of my favorite months with it’s beautiful weather, fall flavors and my favorite HALLOWEEN. Since moving to Las Vegas though its even better because it no longer comes with a side of impending winter gloom. In fact here in Vegas we are so spoiled by our mild off season weather that last night while walking my dog one of my neighbors had a fire going in their outdoor fire pit. It was 84 degrees.
With the banner weather and Halloween and Harvest time upon us this is a busy month and I’ve got a ton to share so let’s dive in.
To start off going on all month long we have the McKee Ranch Pumpkin Patch. Located on the south end of town out by the Silverton McKee Ranch events are laid back family fun at its finest. The ranch features live animal interaction, an explosion of rustic holiday and vintage farm decor, pumpkins and even an on-site photographer to take some fantastic fall photos of the kids. I can not recommend enough that you grab the little ones and head on down to check out this whimsical little haven created by a local couple who invite others to share in their creation.
The cost is $20 per FAMILY which goes to charity AND gets you pumpkins.
They are open throughout the month Mon- Fri from 2 pm - 7 Sat & Sun 2 - 6pm.
Just make sure to check their FB before you go because they close from time to time for private parties.
