WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — With Halloween right around the corner, it’s time to start picking out your costume and your pumpkin. No matter what your age, everyone knows with Halloween comes pumpkins!
The pumpkin patch at the Wesley Memorial United Methodist Church has become a staple here in Wilmington for over twenty-five years. Families have been coming here for generations because it’s a great place to get their orange on.
Kids by age and kids at heart all enjoy coming to the pumpkin patch and picking out their favorite.
It’s a tradition in Wilmington that has been going on for quite some time.
“This is actually our twenty sixth season of pumpkins. It’s pretty amazing how somebody gets an idea and then it grows and grows and grows,” said Youth and Campus Minister Mary Frances McClure, “it’s just a sign of Fall.”
Whether you want a full grown pumpkin, a baby pumpkin, an oddly shaped pumpkin, or a different color pumpkin, you can find it all.
all proceeds from the pumpkin patch go towards youth missions by the church.
The pumpkin patch is now open and will remain open until Halloween.
