This pup-friendly pumpkin patch activity includes a mini professional photoshoot this weekend

Capture some magical fall moments with your pup at this fun activity at Mann Farms Pumpkin Patch this Sunday.


If you love fall and are looking for some fun activities that you can enjoy with your pup, there's one happening this weekend in Abbotsford you're going to want to check out.


PawSwap's Sunday Strolls: Pumpkin Patch Edition powered by Mann Farms, is taking place on October 25, 2020, and promises to be a day full of fall fun - and you can still join even if you don't have a dog of your own!

The socially distanced outdoor activity is PawSwap's fifth Sunday Strolls, but this one has been given a special Halloween twist as its taking place at Mann Farm Pumpkin Patch - and what says fall more than that?

Pups and pumpkin patches offer the perfect fall photo opportunity, which is why tickets include a private mini-photoshoot with Allan Florendo of West Coast Tails Photography who will email attendees their own high quality images.

On the day, attendees and their pups will meet at the front entrance of Maan Farms in Abbotsford and enter together to enjoy a fall morning at the farm.

From there, they will enjoy a stroll through the pumpkin patch where they’ll get to pick their favourite pumpkin, and pose with their pup for some professional photos.


The very talented Allan Florendo of West Coast Tails Photography will also be on hand for the duration of the activity to capture all the fun with your furry bff, and the new friends you’ll both be making - all with the perfect fall backdrop.



But before the fun even begins, attendees can grab their very own goodie bag (worth over $35) filled with everything that you could possibly need for your pumpkin promenade and more, put together with love by the PawSwap team and included in the ticket price.

"Halloween is going to look a little different this year, so we wanted to bring people this socially distanced stroll surrounded by pumpkins and captured by a professional photographer to mark, and celebrate, this beautiful time of the year." says Melanie Englmaier, Event Planning and Community Coordinator at PawSwap.


"The crisp air, fallen leaves and vibrant fall colours everywhere make this such a great time to go for walks outside, especially as so many of us have been stuck inside at home during these difficult times. This really is the perfect fall activity for both you and your pup on a Sunday morning."


As this is a small group activity with limited tickets, only a few spots remain so if you want to make some fun fall-themed plans for this weekend, make sure to grab your ticket today before they're gone.
