Pumpkin patch kid
Gracie Messinger, 19 months old, claps with delight at the pumpkin patch at Knightsville United Methodist Church on Tuesday. The church at 1505 Central Avenue sells pumpkins every year to help support its mission work. More than 2,000 pumpkins, grown on an Indian reservation in New Mexico, arrived last week. The patch is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day except Sundays, when it opens at noon. It will remain open through Oct. 31, and the church is hosting a “trunk or treat” from 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 27 that will feature trick or treating, jump castles, face painting, hayrides and a maze. Cost of admission is one canned good per person.
