1. Visit the Pumpkin PatchFall simply isn't complete without a visit to the pumpkin patch. Bring your boots and wander through the fields of pumpkins at Galey Farm's Pumpkinfest for that fall feeling and fun activities.
Vancouver Island Corn Maze (on FB) is in Sidney, BC. Old friends Pendray Farms open up Vancouver Island Corn Maze this weekend. $10/$5 a walk. Support local farmers in a different way than normal. Yes , that's the shape of Van Isle they carved in their corn field. www.VIcornmaze.com #cornmaze #vanisle #pendray #harvest #fall #october #explorevictoria #explorevancouverisland #cbc #ctv #countrylife #farmer
2. Get Lost in a Corn MazeYou have succeeded in losing yourself if can no longer see the exit as you weave through the corn. We love this incredible corn maze in Saanich as much as we love Vancouver Island. Can you spot the Legislature in the maze?
3. Marvel at Pumpkin CarvingsCarving pumpkins is no easy task, but the results can be magical. In Oak Bay, hundreds of carved pumpkins line the street. Take a look! You'll find the Beatles, the Royal family, your favourite comic characters and plenty of pumpkin carving ideas.
4. Try Pumpkin BeerTaste autumn in one potent sip. Victoria's local craft breweries and cideries brewed a few batches of wonderful pumpkin beer you have to try. Swans crafted an autumnal Pumpkin Ale and Spinnakers went all out with a unique Spiced Latte Pumpkin Ale.
It wouldn't be September without Pumpkin Spice! Our new Pumpkin Spice Macarons are filled with real pumpkin puree that's been whipped with buttercream, and they have a generous dusting of delicious, sweet spice on top. We recommend pairing them with a walk through a sunny fall park—as seen on the cool New Yorker covers we've got featured on the blog! http://bit.ly/1ikg4KE #pumpkinspice #macarons #fallforever #glutenfree #crunchyleavesarethebest
