The annual Pumpkin Patch is under way at St. James United Methodist Church in Goose Creek.
The long-awaited pumpkins arrived last week amid a parade and much fanfare. The Pumpkin Patch is open for sales from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. daily through Oct. 31. Weekends feature special activities for the entire family.
This Saturday, Oct. 5, the United Methodist Women will sponsor a yard sale beginning at 8 a.m. on the church lawn. As always, the yard sale profits benefit local mission projects. Shoppers may want to drop by the Fellowship Hall for some pumpkin pancakes (regular-flavored also available).
The St. James Dames-sponsored pancake breakfast begins at 7 a.m.
The Fall Festival will be held Saturday, Oct. 19. Crafters from around the Lowcountry will have their booths open from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. both inside the Fellowship Hall and outside on the church grounds. There will be children’s games from 11 a.m.-3 p.m., and the Dames Diner will be open from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. selling hot dog and hamburger plates. The youth are having a bake sale.
Trunk or Treat is planned for Oct. 26 from 6-8 p.m. Church members decorate their car trunks or the backs of SUVs and trucks for “trunk-or-treating.”
The community is welcome to enjoy the Pumpkin Patch and all of its activities. The church is located at 512 St. James Avenue.
