Pumpkin patch season is well underway, and with milder temperatures outside, it’s the perfect time to pick a pumpkin for Halloween or get lost and found in a corn maze. Tampa Bay Times photographer Ivy Ceballo visited Fox Squirrel Corn Maze and St. Martin Farms in Plant City on Oct. 8, where families were enjoying the festivities.

Fox Squirrel’s 12th annual corn maze is open on weekends through the first weekend in November. St. Martin Farms has animals and market produce available and posts events on its Facebook page.
