Church of the Redeemer’s annual pumpkin patch returns to the Coast
It wouldn’t be fall without a pumpkin patch and Church of the Redeemer is back with their annual pumpkin patch.
For 29 years, the Church of the Redeemer has had a pumpkin patch for the community. 2,600 pumpkins were shipped all the way from New Mexico to coastal Mississippi for this event.
The money raised from the pumpkins sold will go toward the church’s youth ministry activities. Church leaders say seeing families come out to pick a pumpkin and take pictures is a great feeling. Church of the Redeemer Parishioner Paul Tisdale said, “It’s become a staple in the community and many elementary schools in particular schedule field trips. It’s too late now to schedule a field trip. If you want to come out next year, be sure and schedule early, somewhere around the third or fourth week in September, but it’s a hoot and many a smile to see kids going through. For some of these kids, of course, it’s a big deal to purchase their own pumpkin.”
The pumpkin patch is located on Popps Ferry Road in Biloxi and is open Monday through Saturday from 10-6 and Sundays from noon until 6.
