Pumpkin Patches, Fall Festivals and U-Pick Pumpkin Farms in Pacific NW 2013

BIG list of all the Pumpkin Patch, U-pick farms and Fall Festivals for the Pacific NW! Can't wait to take my kids to the pumpkin patch.

I love this time of year when I get to take my family to fun places like a Pumpkin Patch or a fall festival. Here in the Pacific Northwest we have quite a few great family friendly places and events.

Me and two other bloggers are teaming up and typing up these pumpkin patches and fall festivals by region for the whole Pacific Northwest. We hope you have fun and find some activities to take your families to.

  9. Calvacade of Bands-Marching bands from the northwest performing their shows. It is in Kennewick this year at Lion Stadium (Kennewick High). Alternates years between Kennewick and Pasco’s Edgar Brown Stadium. Always the 1st Saturday in October. You can get more information from either Pasco High or Kennewick High. I don’t know the cost breakdown but most high school band students in Eastern Washington should know when their band is performing. I go every year to help my kid’s band.

  11. My husband and I just went from renting a small two bedroom apartment to buying a 160sqft house.

    Our electricity bill was $177 when we left the apartment. We kept our ac unit on a steady temp (around 70-we just had a baby), never turned the lights on, used cold water instead of warm, washed dishes by hand and when we didn’t we opened the dishwasher when it was on dry cycle (to save on electricity)…we did SO much it felt like.

    Our new house, we have yet to turn on our unit (it’s on auto fan). It’s winter now and we have one large space heater we bought via a yardsale website, we keep it in our daughter’s room at night and in the living room during the day. In the morning if it’s too cold I turn the oven on and crack it to warm up that side of the house. At night we (ahem,…me) sleep under a couple of comforters. I stay layered up at night and by the morning I’m so warm I don’t mind running in the cold to turn on the oven or bring the heater out to the main area of the house. By noon our house is at 68-71 degrees (good temperature for us).
    We use the dishwasher, and I do like 5 loads of laundry a day it feels like. I leave lights on and leave doors or windows open on occasion. Anyways, the point of this is… our electricity bill has been lower than $30 every month since we’ve been in this house. Ack!!! Can you say A M A Z I N G?!!!!

    Just thought I would share. I think that space heaters are a good idea, so is using what you have. Candles easily warm up a smaller room. I put for large candles in my bedroom yesterday at 5:30pm and by 6:00 our room was considerably warmer.
