Special Event: Pumpkin Patches

Pumpkin patches are my favorite part of Halloween. I could live without the rest of it, but I really like going out and selecting pumpkins.

This is where we go:

Arlington United Methodist Church
Glebe Road
Arlington, VA
We have been selecting our pumpkins from this close by 'patch' (really just the yard of the church with lots of pumpkins on it) for the last 3 years. For the 2 and under set it definitely enough. Our pictures are all from this 'patch.' The pumpkins are not locally grown but the sales do benefit local organizations.

On 10/25 from 10am-2:30pm the church is having a special festival:
"Children's Festival & Book FairAn array of children's activities will be offered in conjunction with the Pumpkin Patch -- moon bounce, face painting, target games, improv, sing-a-long, crafts, & much more. The book fair will also be offered for parents and others to enjoy that day as well."
