The Richmond Hill Garden Club will hold its eighth annual Pumpkin Patch Saturday, Oct. 4 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at J.F. Gregory Park in Richmond Hill.

The club will be selling pumpkins of all sizes, as well as other fall plants and decorating accessories such as mums, cornstalks, and straw bells.

There will be plenty of children’s activities and games, including face painting, pumpkin toss, and a fish pond where kids can win prizes.

Mrs. Pumpkin, an annual favorite, will also be on hand for pictures.

Mickey Trimble, of the Garden Club, advises parents to be sure to bring their own cameras this year to take pictures with Mrs. Pumpkin, since the Garden Club no longer has a camera.

Admission to the Pumpkin Patch is free, and the event will be held rain or shine under the pavilion in J.F. Gregory Park.

The event is the annual fundraiser for the Garden Club, which will use the proceeds for beautification projects around Richmond Hill and Bryan County. The club maintains gardens at the Richmond Hill Primary School, the Richmond Hill Public Library and the Wetlands Center in J.F. Gregory Park. The Garden Club meets the second Wednesday of every month at the Richmond Hill Public Library at 10 a.m.
