Every year at the end of September, I watch for the giant metal pumpkin to appear at the corner of Jackson Road and South Watt Avenue to let me know that Roemer Pumpkin Patch will open soon.  Aside from the fact that it’s not far out of town, I especially like that Roemer grows so many different varieties of pumpkins. 

This year, Cindy, Jackie, Carol and I visited Roemer Pumpkin Patch as Hometown Tourists.  We thoroughly enjoyed the hay wagon ride out to the pumpkin patch and our ramblings through the corn maze.  Take a look at our photos to get an idea of the fun activities that await you at Roemer Pumpkin Patch.  It’s great family fun for kids and adults as well.
