Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of year. Between the beautiful colours of fall, delicious turkey meals, and the loved ones that come around, you can feel the comfort of this October long-weekend. And what better way to make the most of this break than with fun Thanksgiving festivities? In this blog, we’ve come up with some of the best Thanksgiving activities in the White Rock and South Surrey area for you to enjoy this holiday season.
Rondriso Farms Pumpkin Patch
For starters, if you really want to get in the holiday mood, be sure to check out the Rondriso Farms General Store and Pumpkin Patch. Opening on the 1st of October, Rondriso Farms has “some of the biggest, best-quality pumpkins around”. Challenge your family to find the best pumpkin in the patch! It’s a guaranteed memorable activity for kids and adults alike. What’s more – Rondriso Farms also offers cozy, wagon hayrides down to the pumpkin fields.

The last activity that we recommend to you this Thanksgiving is some good, old-fashioned apple picking! Annie’s Orchard, located in Aldergrove, is certainly worth the drive. Here, you’ll find over 50 varieties of apples. And if you’re a holiday baker, then you know this means one thing, and one thing only: apple pie! Check out Annie’s if you love “delicious, fresh picked fruit”, and more importantly, if you love to pick that fruit yourself. The novelty of plucking a fresh apple off a beautiful apple tree truly never gets old.
