    I personally like the Victoria’s Gardens pumpkin patch! There are so many fun activities for the kids to do, like a hay ride, bouncy houses and a corn maze, and not to mention the best pumpkin selection in town! Ive gone to this particular patch last year and cant imagine going anywhere else. There are also a lot of fun Halloween activities to do on the 101 Things to do SD site..definitely should check it out
