Pumpkin Patch is in full swing; a Memorylaners Concert coming up at First Congregational Church
The First Congregational Church Annual Pumpkin Patch is up and running and will be open through Halloween, Oct. 31. Pumpkins of all sizes are displayed on the church lawn and will be available for purchase every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. This marks the 20th year of “The Orange Glow” taking over the church lawn on Hamilton Street, across the street from Town Hall.
“Come and visit our Pumpkin Patch,” Pumpkin Patch coordinator Carl Spencer said. “It will put you in the fall spirit. The pumpkins are going fast, so come and choose yours.”
Some important future dates:
- Friday, Oct. 14: Pumpkin Patch Concert – featuring the Memorylaners – in the church from 7-8:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door.
- Saturday, Oct. 15 at 9 a.m.: The Pumpkin Truck arrives with more pumpkins. Help is needed to unload the truck.
“The church truly enjoys hosting this great fall event,” Spencer said.
Saugus is one of many communities receiving pumpkins from the Navajo Reservation near Farmington, N.M., working with a program called Pumpkin Patch USA, which coordinates the destination of the pumpkins. The church and the Navajo Reservation both benefit from the pumpkins.
