Patches, Treats and Festivals Galore

It’s fall on the First Coast, and although we won’t see many leaves changing or any snow, there is still plenty of fun to be had. With the suggestions from this list, dress up the children for a night of trick-or-treating outside the neighborhood this Halloween or take the family to a fun fall festival or pumpkin patch!

Pumpkin Patches

Pumpkins on the Point
Sept. 26–Oct. 31 (or until pumpkins run out)
The pumpkin patch at Southside United Methodist Church (SUMC) offers pumpkins that range from 50 cents to $80. Profits will go toward the church’s ability to work and make a difference through love and labor in places like Guatemala and Cuba. In addition to pumpkins, the patch also hosts events catered to children of various ages such as preschool and elementary school readings, a fall festival, trunk-or-treat (mobile trick-or-treat stations set up in the trunks of parked cars) and a special concert. Head to SUMC and let your child roam the pumpkins for the best one. southsidemethodist.org/pumpkins-on-the-point
