Pumpkin Patch

Pumpkin Patch

This fun-filled event features massive displays of over fifteen thousand pumpkins. Special displays of costumed scarecrows and fantasy characters are arranged for taking that perfect picture of your family, children, or grandchildren amidst the festival of fall colors and characters. On weekends, weather permitting, there are hayrides and the special Pumpkin Patch Express Train rides for the children. 

Please, no professional photography permitted

If you are looking for that special day in a fall festival designed to entertain all the members of your family, you are cordially invited to the Bracken United Methodist Church’s Pumpkin Patch. You will find pumpkins from baseball size to monsters that will take two people to carry - pumpkins and colorful gourds of every size and description - and maybe even some decorated and painted pumpkins. Prices for the pumpkins start as low as fifty cents. Everyone in the community is invited to come out and enjoy the Pumpkin Patch festivities. Dress the children in Halloween costumes and take fabulous pictures of them enjoying their day in a wondrous setting of thousands of Pumpkins.

Each year in October the Pumpkin Patch plays host to a Fall Festival, a time of family fun for the whole community, with music, games and food.  Entry, a light dinner and all activities are free! This year’s Fall Festival will be held Saturday, October 25, from 4:00 - 6:30 P.M.

This year we are open
Saturday, September 27th - November 2nd

9am - Sundown

Hay and train rides will not be running November 1st & 2nd

During the mornings school and special children’s groups from four counties bring about three thousand children to celebrate a day at the Bracken Pumpkin Patch. They participate in special entertaining centers where they paint pumpkins, sing songs, hear stories, play games and everyone goes home with their own special pumpkin.

If you are with a school and would like to plan a field trip to the patch, reservations must be made in advance by calling the Preschool at 830.624.1429.

Thank you to Cleto and News 4 WOAI for coming out to the patch. View pictures
