Pumpkins on the Prairie 2020

In News by Kim Eiffert

Pumpkin Patch is Opening!
Oct 17-31, 2020
Pumpkins on the Prairie has been a beloved tradition in the Frisco are for over 15 years. Each year our neighbors come from miles around to share in the joy that a day outside in the fall weather brings to people of all ages. Families come for pictures, to find that perfect pumpkin, and just to be together. We have met thousands of local school children during field trips, celebrated birthdays, and absolutely loved every day of it.

In planning for the 2020 season we have been faced with how we can love our neighbors by keeping everyone as safe as possible and how we can love our neighbors by still maintaining this tradition for our community. In conjunction with the city of Frisco, we have made plans for a shorter season, with several other adjustments. We won’t be having the hayride, bounce houses and some other activities. We will still have photo ops, pumpkins, and a sincere welcome to everyone who comes to our patch this year.

While Pumpkins on the Prairie is going to be a little different this year, we are so excited to be opening and look forward to seeing everyone!
