Trinity Church Pumpkin Patch now open in Pass Christian
We’ll be turning the page on the calendar later this week and with the month of October comes the Halloween festivities.
One local favorite to get you and your family in the Halloween spirit is the Trinity Episcopal Church Pumpkin Patch in Pass Christian.
Their pumpkins arrived Sunday evening and the patch is now open to the public.
Not only can these pumpkins dress up your house for fall, but your purchase benefits multiple local organizations.
The proceeds go towards Pass Christian High School, Boys and Girls Club, and Woodside Wildlife Rescue to name a few.
Last year, the patch only collected 50 percent of what they normally do because of pumpkin shipment delays caused by the pandemic and Hurricane Zeta damaging the crop.
The patch has been a part of the Pass Christian community for 29 years. Fred Tagge with Trinity Church Pumpkin Patch said, “We have people who came here as kids now bringing their kids to the patch. The year after Katrina we had people come down here literally in tears because this was the first happy thing they’d seen in a year.”
The patch opens at 10 a.m. daily, weather and supply permitting.
