THE SANTA CLARA
October 31, 2013
It’s the most “spooktacular” day of the year. Today is the day to get all of your last-minute costumes, candy corn cravings and pumpkin carving done.
It’s Halloween. And before your evening festivities begin, there is no better way to celebrate than going to a pumpkin patch and wandering around a six-acre cornfield maze.
G&M Farms, in the lovely Livermore Valley, offers some of the best autumnal fun around. The farm’s beautiful grounds offer sunny activities in the fresh fall air that will make anyone feel young at heart.
G&M Farms has been voted the Bay Area’s best seasonal attraction by Diablo Magazine and has even been featured on The Late Show with David Letterman.
The farm is located off I-580 and welcomes people of all ages. During your visit, you can lounge on hay bales, pet some farm animals, ride the cow train or just enjoy the sunshine.
Be sure to peruse the pumpkin patch to pick out that perfectly-shaped orange squash for some epic carving. Or stop by the produce stand to pick up some of the farms freshest fruits and veggies. You can also buy some colorful gourds or Indian corn to make any table or front porch holiday-ready.
For the ultimate Halloween experience, check out the six-acre cornfield maze. Once visitors enter this massive labyrinth, it is easy to become lost wandering through the tall corn stalks.
For a tamer maze experience, visit the farm during the day so you can find your way out in the daylight rather than the dark.
However, if you seek a classic Halloween thrill, roam the maze at night. Beware as creepy creatures and frightening faces jump out at you around every dark corner. Bring a flashlight — only if you are afraid of the dark.
Once you have found your way out of the maze, make sure to take a break and recover at the dessert truck and snack on some yummy holiday treats.
Fully indulge in the holiday spirit for the last of the spooky season and stop by the G&M Farms.
