Most Northwest Indiana Pumpkin Patches and Corn Mazes usually open by mid September, some earlier! Some are farms, where you take a hay ride out into the field, others are elaborate farm stands with mountains of pumpkins and other activities and some are simple roadside stands. Most have loads of pumpkins to choose from. To really make it fun for your kids, look for those that have the extra activities, like a corn maze, spook houses, or hayrides. There is usually a small fee for the mazes (of course, the more elaborate mazes tend to charge more.) Usually Hayrides are free.
