The Chicago Park District invited children to pumpkin patches at four sites on Saturday, including one in Mount Greenwood Park on the Southwest Side.

The boys and girls were able to choose pumpkins and then decorate them.

They also enjoyed pony rides, had their faces painted and met goats up close in a petting zoo.
