CARLSBAD, Calif. (KGTV) - The Carlsbad Pumpkin Patch is officially open for the 2020 season.

Located at 1050 Cannon Road just off Interstate 5, the pumpkin patch will be open every day through Nov. 8 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The family business has been a u-pick strawberry company since 1972, adding pumpkins and a corn maze in the last six years.

This year, there will be two corn mazes. One will be haunted beginning Oct. 2. There is also a bounce house and food vendors on the weekends. Brand new this year is an apple cannon that shoots apples more than 100 MPH. Scattered around the lot are sanitizing stations, and the pumpkin patch was also moved closer to the front so visitors do not have to ride a tractor to get to the pumpkins.

It’s $5 for general admission ages six and up, and each activity has an additional cost.
