Summer in KC has a way of exiting just as quickly as it heated up! These cool temperatures feel amazing and Wal-Mart is already brimming with Halloween candy. September and October are probably my favorite months of the year to get out and do things with my kids in Kansas City. And a big reason is the plethora of pumpkin patches and apple orchards around town. As with any event or activity, you’ll want to check for dates/hours of operation. Most pumpkin patches and orchards open next weekend or soon thereafter.
