Pumpkin patch returns to Lawton church

LAWTON, Okla._Fall is here, Halloween is just a month away and the pumpkin patch at Lawton's First United Methodist Church is back.

Crews with the church, located at the corner of Northwest 27th Street and Ferris Avenue, unloaded about 4,500 pumpkins Sunday afternoon, and they're now on sale until the end of October.

The pumpkins, which include some of the unusual white "Cinderella" pumpkins, are grown on a Navajo Indian reservation in New Mexico. The proceeds not only go back to the tribe, but also support the church's children's ministry and music ministry. Organizers say it also a fun event for the community.

“We see kids drive by and we hear them scream 'pumpkins!' out the window and I think when you drive by it just makes you happy. One young man said ‘I want to bring my mother out here, she's had a rough day and I think it'll make her very happy,’"

The pumpkin patch is open Monday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. through October 31. First United Methodist Church, located at 2602 NW Ferris Ave., is right behind Hastings.

Pumpkins range in price from $0.50 to $50, depending on their size.
