SEARCHING FOR THE PERFECT ONE

The annual Boca Raton Pumpkin Patch Festival returns to the Mizner Park Amphitheater for a two-day event on the weekend of Oct. 6 and 7 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. 

The event is highly anticipated, set to feature family fun games, a carnival and the main attraction –a pumpkin patch with more than 3,000 pumpkins. 

“The Pumpkin Patch Festival is always a top-class event where all of our community can come out to celebrate everything wonderful about fall,” said Amy DiNorscio, Mizner Park amphitheater manager. “Last year, we had over 5,000 people join us within the two days. This year we are looking for that number to grow even more.”

For those interested in attending, the $20 admission includes unlimited carnival games, face painting, giveaways, entry into the cornstalk maze and much more. Plus, children under the age of two attend for free.

For an added cost, attendees can pick the perfect pumpkin of their liking in the large-scale patch. With the purchase of a pumpkin, individuals will then also be allowed to decorate it under the unique decorating tent. 

The Pumpkin Patch Festival also features a Pumpkin Sweet Garden, displaying all types of fall sweets and treats. Another perk: those over the age of 21 can enjoy alcoholic beverages at the Pumpkin Beer Garden. 

As always, the City of Boca Raton seeks individuals interested in volunteering for this event and others.  Many within the program have seen the ongoing impact of assistance from the community. 

“Our volunteers are a vital part of all our events and another reason why they are so great,” said Carolina Sanchez, community relations division for the City of Boca Raton. “Our upcoming Pumpkin Patch Festival is no different.”
