Fort Bend County’s largest Pumpkin Patch returns October 10 with thousands of pumpkins of all sizes available at the 5th annual Holy Cross Episcopal Church Pumpkin Patch.
The patch will be open seven days a week where Fort Bend families will be able to use the patch as the perfect backdrop for Fall family photos and to choose from among the pumpkins, ornamental gourds, and Indian corn available to purchase for holiday decorating.
This Fort Bend family tradition will include free weekend entertainment with appearances by award-winning Texas musical artists, and performances by local dance groups. Activities for kids will include face painting and a hayride. Even animals will be able to participate on Saturday, Oct. 22, when the church will carry on the tradition of St. Francis of Assisi with a Blessing of the Beasts at 5:30 p.m.
Texas barbeque and harvest crafts will also be featured on weekends.
The Patch is being held at the church’s location at 5653 West River Park Drive at the Grand Parkway (99) through Monday, October 31. Hours will be 11 am-8 pm Sundays-Fridays and 9 am-8 pm Saturdays.
Holy Cross Church’s Pumpkin Patch is one of more than 1,300 held across the U.S. each year in cooperation with Pumpkin Patch Fundraisers, Inc., which grows pumpkins in northwestern New Mexico in agreement with the Navajo Agricultural Products Industry.
