2015 Fall Festivals, Pumpkin Farms,

Hayrides & Halloween Venues in Will County 

  

     Cooler temperatures and falling leaves mean that Fall has arrived and Halloween is just around the corner.  And that means pumpkin farms, corn mazes, haunted houses, scarecrows, spooky ghosts, witches, and goblins of all shapes and sizes have cropped up everywhere.     

 

    For those living in/near Will County, in Illinois ... that means families and friends will be looking to get out and enjoy all that Fall has to offer.  

 

    To help do that, I've compiled a list of Pumpkin Farms, Patches, Corn Mazes, Hayrides, Halloween Venues, Fun Fall Festivals and more that can be found within the boundaries of Will County, IL ... along with info, links, and directions for each venue. 

 

     I hope the list proves beneficial to you, your family, and friends ... and helps you find a Fall seasonal event to visit and enjoy!

Gene I love visiting the pumpkin patches, corn mazes, and going on hayrides this time of the year.  Great job in providing a list of all of them in your area.

By the way I know you were having a hard time posting, but the blog looks good on my end.

Hi Gene - what a lot of fall fun in Will County!

Good morning Gene. Our youngest daughter has a late October birthday, last year she wanted to spend a couple of hours at a corn maze, it was a blast, we bought pumpkins as well.

Nice job sharing all the different locations for some family fun.
