Papa’s Pumpkin Patch 2020…….COVID STYLE
Like most places, 2020 at the pumpkin patch will be a bit different 🙃. Please check out our changes so far and continue to watch for updates!
1. This year will be a ‘pick your own pumpkin’ ONLY! We will not be doing any picking! Bring your sissors and head out to the patch to get your pumpkins 🎃 (Dates, times and locations to be posted at a later time)
2. Cost of pumpkins…… due to everyone having a rough year, Papa and Grama have decided to do a •donation only• for pumpkins! There will be a donation box at the patch if you wish to make a donation, if you are not able too, do not stress, we still want you to come pick your pumpkins, decorate your homes and of course do some carving🤗!
(Note: please be courteous, do not pick to resell)
3. Due to safety concerns, there will not be any activities this year, we will simply have pumpkins for picking and possibly pumpkin pies (for purchase)!
4. We would like to take a moment and thank everyone who has come out and supported one of the Quad Cities Pumpkin Patches!
