This Saturday, October 24th, will be the 2nd Annual Pumpkin Harvest at the Orange County Great Park in Irvine (near the 5/405/133 freeway intersection). Between 1-5 PM, the FREE activities include pumpkin picking (only 1 per child while supplies last!) and decorating, games, kids crafts and activities, a costume parade, Halloween treats, a petting zoo, and more. Not only will this be a fun and unique date, but it's for a good cause! Your date may even give you bonus points when you offer to help them clean out their kitchen cabinet for long-forgotten can food. Admission is free, but parking is $8, so it's a good reason to pick up your date and carpool. Remember to dress warm for this outdoor event. Enjoy!
