Pumpkin Patch Festival Will Bring Fall Atmosphere to Boca Raton

This year, Boca Raton will also be organizing the Pumpkin Patch Festival to celebrate the start of the fall season. The festival will be held at the same place as last year, which is Mizner Park Amphitheater at Plaza Real. The event will be taking over the grass lot in the adjacent. It is the third time that the event has been held at the same place. Though, not just these festivals but online casinos in NJ is also gaining high popularity as the inclination has increased drastically. The pumpkin patch festival will be held for 2 days from 10 am – 6 pm on Oct. 19 and Oct. 20.

History of Boca Raton Pumpkin Patch Festival 

The design of the Boca Raton Pumpkin Patch Festival event is based on the Coconut Grove Pumpkin Patch Festival. Vanessa Goodis is the founder of both events. Goodis founded the two events to revive the special atmosphere of the fall season celebration she used to enjoy with her families in South Florida.

 The first event, Coconut Grove Pumpkin Patch Festival, gets thousands of visitors in the first year. It was more successful than she had hoped for and was later being listed as the top fall festival in the country. Goodis decided to introduce the pumpkin patch festival to Boca Raton after having a lot of success with Coconut Grove festival for many years.

 The organizers are making sure that everyone gets the most value from their money by preparing as many activities as possible. Goodis realizes that certain features of the seasons just can’t be altered even with the celebration. She said that everyone will still need to drink water and wear sunscreen regardless of how much effort they put in to make it look like it is fall. This is because South Florida, where Boca Raton is located, experiences a delay in the fall season. The best fall season is in the north of Florida from late October to mid-November.
