The pumpkins are coming! The pumpkins are coming! Holy Trinity Catholic School will once again be having its annual Great Pumpkin Patch, beginning today.

The Great Pumpkin Patch will be open every day from noon to 7 p.m. The pumpkins will be available for purchase starting today at noon.

Last year Holy Trinity received more than 2,500 pumpkins for the Great Pumpkin Patch, in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes, including small gourds and tiny pumpkins. Holy Trinity’s Great Pumpkin Patch will be supplying the pumpkins to the Huron Young Professionals and the Boy Scouts for the Huron Harvest Fest. All of those pumpkins make for a great photo opportunity with the kids. The Great Pumpkin Patch will be open through Oct. 21, or until the last pumpkin is sold! 

In conjunction with the Great Pumpkin Patch, Holy Trinity will also be hosting its first annual Pumpkin Patch Festival on Oct. 14 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Pumpkin Patch Festival will consist of many games and crafts for kids, including a “corn crawl” filled with corn kernels for the kids to jump in, face painting, the “Balloon Guy,” an obstacle course, pumpkin decorating, craft table, sidewalk chalk, Halloween music and a concession stand.

There is a small admission fee to the Festival. All of the games and crafts will take place in and around the pumpkins in the Great Pumpkin Patch. For additional information, please contact Rose Kluth at 354-5352.
