Pumpkins on the Prairie began in 2002 as a mission and all church activity for Grace Avenue UMC. Each year, it provides a month of fun and festivities for families and friends! All the community is welcome!
While everyone can pick their favorite pumpkins, children will also enjoy playing in the bounce house, running through the hay maze and playing games in our “Kid’s Patch!” Plus, there are lots of picture taking opportunities with our fall set-ups and family-fun hayrides!
Extra special activities are planned for the weekends, including … back by popular demand, the Great Pumpkin Launcher! (You’ve got to see it, to believe it!)
Pumpkin Patch School Visits
Each October we sponsor Kindergarten field trips for area schools to visit our Pumpkin Patch. This is an educational opportunity for the school children. Volunteers are needed to lead sessions on science, math, social studies, art, storytime and a hayride. If you would like to volunteer, please contace Laura Echols-Richter, Program Minister, at 972-335-2882 ext. 506 or [email protected].
