I don’t know about you, but not many things excite me more than the thought of the approaching change of season.

Whether you like to spend your time leisurely watching the leaves change, stay active as the weather cools down, or look forward to a spookier way to celebrate the season, our city has you covered! The Louisville Real Estate Pros have taken the time to compile list of some of Louisville, KY’s best events in the fall.

Visiting the Perfect Pumpkin Patch Around Louisville, KY

Visiting the Perfect Pumpkin Patch Around Louisville, KY.Many families have specific holiday traditions, and Halloween is certainly no exception! Finding the perfect pumpkin to carve, paint, or use as a beautiful mantle decoration can be just as fun as the actual decorating itself. Enjoying your own hunt for the perfect pumpkin can easily turn into a day-long activity when visiting one of our city’s fantastic pumpkin patches. There are many to choose from, and they are sure to never disappoint.

Joe Huber’s Family Farm & Restaurant is located at 2421 Engle Road in Starlight, Indiana. While they are open year-round for good family fun and dining, Pumpkin Picking Time is from September 14 through October 31, 2015.
