ALLEN, Texas – You’ll find a big pumpkin patch and are invited to join us for a community-wide fall festival this year at Creekwood United Methodist Church.
The patch will be stocked with over seven tons of pumpkins, available for purchase, with proceeds benefitting Creekwood youth mission work. Beginning Sunday, October 1, the patch will be open daily from 9 a.m. to dusk.
The annual Creekwood Fall Festival, an event that draws hundreds each year, will be held Saturday, October 21, from 3 – 6 p.m. Admission is free of charge and attendees will be treated to a petting zoo, hay rides, face painting, carnival games, cake walks, a bounce house, balloon animals, hotdogs, popcorn and much more! Friends and families will have the opportunity to pose for portraits at the big red Creekwood barn, believed to be one of the oldest standing barns in Collin County.
Take a picture by the barn and post it to social media with #creekwoodpatch. For each posting, Creekwood will donate $10 to the Ten Buys a Hen campaign benefitting the Assistance Center of Collin County providing a holiday turkey for a local family in need.
“The Pumpkin Patch and Fall Festival are much-loved community events and we’re blessed to have the property to pull these off,” said senior pastor, David Lessner. “As is the foundation of the harvest season, we invite those in the community to join us in celebrating the abundance in our lives with our families and neighbors.”
