What to do and where to go in the OKC metro
Looking for Hay Mazes & Pumpkins?
Teachers and parents, don’t forget that fall pumpkin patches and mazes kick off soon and run through the end of October in most cases. Find hay and corn mazes, pumpkin patches and games and more at Oklahoma’s fun farms.
Teachers can make use of the Teachable Moments category to find farms with a field trip and educational component for groups.
