With Halloween just days away, Park Ridge Community Church on Oct. 15 launched its annual Pumpkin Patch in Uptown.
Hundreds of pumpkins, as well as Indian corn and gourds, will be available for sale through Oct. 30 at the Youth Pumpkin Patch, at Prospect and Crescent avenues. Hours of operation are from 3-7 p.m. weekdays, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturdays and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sundays.
Proceeds from the eighth annual sale will be shared between the Park Ridge Community Church Youth Ministry Fund and the Navajo Tribe of New Mexico that grows the pumpkins.
At dusk on Oct. 22 and Oct. 29, the classic Halloween movie “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” will be shown outdoors, weather permitting. Local musicians will also perform on weekends.
