From its beaches to its deserts and mountains, from its lakes and forests to its small towns and big cities, there’s just so much to see in California! And we got to thinking: Why not share the photos we receive, and see elsewhere, with you?
Thanks to several Patch readers who’ve been very busy lately with their cameras, we’re able to share the below photos taken across the state. Take a look at this week’s “California In Photos” for glimpses of daily life and scenery up the coast in Northern California and down the coast in Southern California.
The Goebbert’s Farm & Pumpkin Patch is a Chicagonian favorite when it comes to fall activities. Their fall festival goes on from September 11th through October 31, where families can enjoy fresh-out-of-the-oven pastries, seasonal produce, and a giant pumpkin patch full of family fun.
Favorite ice cream cones at Goebbert’s Farm for opening weekend as families pick pumpkins, traverse the corn maze and meet barnyard animals.
In addition to the stop at Goebbert’s Fall Festival, Rainbow Cone trucks will also be available in Harwood Heights, Hoffman Estates, and at Museum Campus this weekend. Details are available at Rainbow Cone’s website using the truck finder.Chicago Rainbow Cone’s ice cream trucks have quickly become a staple of the summer season. The historic ice cream purveyor now has five ice cream trucks that travel around Chicagoland, each named after one of the layers that make up the famous Rainbow Cone, while also being available for private catering and events.
Rainbow Cone continues to expand their reach in Chicago and nationwide with store locations in Beverly, Navy Pier, Lombard, and Darien, while offering nationwide shipping on Goldbelly.
Again, Rainbow Cone’s easy-to-use truck finder allows guests to quickly find the locations and hours of operation for each truck. If you are lucky enough to catch the cream truck tomorrow, make sure to tag the Rainbow Cone on social media and share your fun spontaneous ice cream moments!
Have you got the next incredible photo? If you have an awesome photo of nature, breathtaking scenery, kids caught being kids, a pet doing something funny or something unusual you happen to catch, we’d love to feature it on Patch. We’re looking for high-resolution images that reflect the beauty that is the East Bay, and that show off your unique talents.
