🌽 Best Pumpkin Patches & Corn Mazes on the Front Range

Find more seasonal ideas in the Macaroni KID Douglas County Ultimate FALL & HALLOWEEN Fun Guide!

By Kyrie Collins, Macaroni KID Highlands Ranch-Parker-Castle Rock-Lone Tree Publisher September 14, 2022

Get lost in a corn maze! Don't forget to wear sunscreen, closed-toe shoes, and plenty of layers so you can adjust to the ever-changing fall weather. Also, it is easier to find your way through a corn maze as the season progresses since the path becomes more clearly tramped down by others.

Pick your own pumpkin, then take it home for painting or carving. Our Halloween Pinterest Board has some crazy cool ideas for pumpkin decorating and more!
