To follow up on Sharlene's post on "Halloween Fun In and Around Irvine", I wanted to share my fun experience at Tanaka Farms in Irvine. There's a little under a week leading up to Halloween and you can still snag your pumpkins in time to carve jack-o-lanterns, DIY decorate/embellish/paint your pumpkins, or simple display them for a festive autumn touch! Tanaka Farms offers a marketplace where you can shop a variety of fresh produce, pumpkins, gourds, corn stalks, and more! Surrounding the marketplace is a petting zoo, carnival games, face painting, food & drinks (yummy corn, shaved iced, hot dogs...oh my!) and a TON of awesome photo ops! I loved seeing the kids all dressed up and taking fun photos. 

In this same area is where you purchase tickets or passes for any of the activities (petting zoo, atv rides & games) as well as for the wagon rides to the u-pick pumpkin patch and veggies!
