Search for the Great Pumpkin
This is the weekend each year when we usually trek out and do the whole pumpkin patch/corn maze/hay maze/cider drinking tradition. We used to just go to the Pumpkin Patch on Sauvie Island but after it started getting way too crowded for us and we started having bad luck with finding decent pumpkins, we have since branched out...and we are very glad we have. The past few years we've found some great farms that are worth a little bit of a drive. The owners are awesome and they've got great fresh produce in addition to all of the pumpkin fun.
