2013 Pumpkin Patch
Saturday October 5th daily through Thursday October 31st
Open Daily 9am to 7pm 


 Pumpkin Patch was conceived in 1989 during a discussion between long-time friends.  The women's favorite projects, Friends of the Library and Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church Ladies' Guild (now Council of Catholic Women) needed a major fund-raising focus.  A gardener became involved in the discussion.  He suggested they buy pumpkins and resell them for Halloween and Fall decorating.  And he just happened to have a source.  His friend in Muleshoe, Texas, expected a bumper pumpkin crop and had no market.  The women decided to try selling pumpkins and divide the profits between the two organizations.  

And, as most anecdotes go, "the rest is history."   In 1992 more than 250 volunteers worked more than 1,200 hours to sell in excess of 25,000 pumpkins.  While the location and the range of merchandise have changed since 1989, two things remain the same: volunteers still do all the work and pumpkins from the Pumpkin Patch decorate area homes and yards.
