Walters Pumpkin Patch - Burns, Kansas
Walters Pumpkin Patch, south of Burns, Kansas, is one of the growing number of pumpkin patches which are extending their season by adding a sunflower field. In 2020, they planted two crops of sunflowers, side by side. The first group is just past prime as of August 22, with the adjacent group coming on a few days behind. Check the Walters Pumpkin Patch Facebook page to confirm both the hours and that there are sunflowers in bloom.
They offer many activities, such as a corn maze, two gift shops, play areas, but the $10 admission may seem high if you are just there for the sunflowers. We liked the fresh warm donuts for a dollar.
2020 dates are August 22, 23, 29 and 30 from 10AM - 4PM. Admission is $10 per person; sunflowers $1 per stem or 10 for $6. Mask are required indoors and temperatures are checked when you are admitted.
Pumpkinfest begins September 19.
