The pumpkin patch is coming. Fall is on its way and the soon-to-be-famous Pumpkin Patch at Carteret Street United Methodist Church will be open daily beginning Monday, October 1st. with thousands of pumpkins being delivered fresh the day before. The Pumpkin Patch is open to the public and offers pumpkins of all shapes and sizes for sale. School trips are also available, and all proceeds raised benefit the church’s youth ministries.
The pumpkins are grown in New Mexico by Navajo Indians and are shipped directly to the church as a gesture of faith. The church, in turn, sells the pumpkins, reports the sales and receives a portion in donation.
If that’s not enough, Carteret Street United Methodist Church’s annual Fall Bazaar will be held Saturday, October 14th, from 8am to 2pm at the church. The event is free and open to the public. Attendees will be able to enjoy purchasing baked goods, frozen foods and other edible delicacies, participate in a silent auction, prepare for fall planting with sod and bedding plants from the Garden Shop, or find treasure in the good “junque”, tools, crafts, toys and games booths.
As with any good bazaar, concessions will be sold throughout the day. The Pumpkin Patch will also be open, and there will be kids’ games in a fun event for the entire family.
Carteret Street United Methodist Church is located 408 Carteret Street in Beaufort.
