Whittamore’s Farm’s Pumpkinland: It just wouldn’t be fall in the GTA without a trip to Whittamore’s Farm’s Pumpkinland and their Harvest Festival Weekends. Visitors will find plenty of pumpkins to choose from. The children’s playground is a family favourite. Try not to get lost in the gigantic corn maze. There is nothing quite like watching Farmer Frank catapulting pumpkins across the field in the Pumpkin Cannon Show…unbelievable.
