The only thing better than watching sports teams do their thing in Kansas City is going all out for the fall season.

By “all out,” we mean dressing your house (or apartment) up for Halloween and getting the perfect pumpkins to sit on the front porch or create that perfect pumpkin pie that the entire family loves. You can head to the supermarket to grab a pumpkin, but how much fun is that? Instead, why don’t you venture out to the many farms and churches that dot the Kansas City region and pick your perfect pumpkin up at a pumpkin patch?

While you’re at it, take the family to a giant corn maze and get them lost while you pick your perfect pumpkins; and if you’re in search of the perfect place to get one (or get lost in a corn maze), make sure the following locations are on your list.
