Looking for a pumpkin patch or corn maze in Maryland? Here's a list of places to go near Annapolis, Bowie, Baltimore, D.C. or the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Make an afternoon of selecting a pumpkin or just go grab one for your front porch, there are plenty of home grown pumpkins in the fields around Maryland.
Kids can pick your own pumpkins from the field, enjoy a hayride, and in many cases enjoy cider and fresh produce from the farm stand. And for a fun afternoon try finding your way through a corn maze full of twists and turns.

Kids love fall with the pumpkin patches to explore, leaves to jump in and especially the costumes to dress up in. We asked our readers to send us photos of their kids enjoying fall for the 2016 Chesapeake Family Fall Photo Contest and we had so many adorable entries.
Aliya and Arielle Thompson, ages 3 and 5, from Odenton got the most votes in the 2016 photo contest. Brayden Rednagle, 5, from Sunderland, was chosen for the October cover. The rest below were just too cute not to show off. Thanks to all those who entered. And special thank you to our photo contest sponsor, Philbin & Reinheimer Orthodontics.
