Dave's Pumpkins in Huntley, IL and Pumpkin Carving

Fall is my favorite time of the year and of course that means it is time to get pumpkins! I get several pumpkins over the course of September and October. I love pumpkin carving and, of course, roasting pumpkin seeds.Β  We’ve lived in Chicagoland almost two years now and I am thrilled that I found a great place for pumpkins this year – Dave’s Pumpkins in Huntley, IL. All pumpkins are $5 each so it is best to go early to have your pick of pumpkins.Β  They are located on Algonquin Rd, between Randall Rd. and Rte 47, and they are located on the westbound side of the road. There was plenty of parking today but I imagine as it gets later in the season, parking could be cramped. You pay for your pumpkins on the honor system – just follow the signs to the “self-pay” area.
