Pumpkin picking is just the tip of the iceberg at the sixth annual L-C Valley Habitat for Humanity Pumpkin Patch in Clarkston, where storytimes, scavenger hunts, photo stations and pony rides round out the offerings.
The event runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday (Oct. 10) through Oct. 31. at 1242 Highland Ave., with additional activities scheduled for weekends, including the Clarkston Farmers Market from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 23 and 30. A calendar, which will be updated with activities throughout the month, is at pumpkinpatchlcv.org.
“This event is our annual signature event, and it helps us build affordable housing and do repairs in the L-C Valley,” L-C Valley Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Deb Snyder said.
Snyder said she’s seen families make visiting the pumpkin patch a tradition over the past several years, coming to take photos and make memories.
The patch, featuring more than 3,000 pumpkins and gourds of all sizes, also will be the site of pony rides from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 16, 17, 23 and 24. The rides, through a business called Ready, Set, Ride, cost $7 and include a photo.
