Pumpkin patch 2017
Each year, the Youth Group and Youth Committee along with other groups in the Park Ridge Community Church embark on their largest fundraiser, the Youth Pumpkin Patch. The proceeds from this fundraiser support their youth programs, the summer mission trip, and the designated charities chosen by the high school youth.
The Pumpkin Patch opens on Saturday, October 12th. The patch will be in operation throughout the month, six days a week, until the supply of pumpkins is sold out.
The Patch provides great fun for families and kids of all ages. There will be thousands of pumpkins, a variety of gourds and squash. Live music on the weekends, homemade baked goods and dusk showings of "It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" on the following Friday and Saturday evenings:                                      
Friday & Saturdays at Dusk - October 12, 18 &19, 25 & 26
​This event helps celebrates the season in the greater Park Ridge Community. A wonderful time for fun, service and fellowship. Please come out and join them!
