Abilene: DRI Pumpkin Patch: October 1-31st

October 1, 2014 - 10:00am to 7:00pm

The Pumpkin Patch is an annual fundraiser for DRI. For the whole month of October, seven days a week, our DRI folks and staff, along with hundreds of volunteers, work the Patch. The DRI lawn is decorated with props, swings, hay bales and thousands of pumpkins. The pumpkins come in all sizes…from small pie pumpkins to huge 80 pound pumpkins. School groups and children of all ages come out to our campus to take part in the free hayrides around the campus, enjoy story time, purchase their pumpkins, and take pictures. Last year, over 10,000 people visited during the month to purchase their fall pumpkins and take advantage of the wonderful photo opportunities.

The patch is open to the public daily.

From 10 a.m. until sunset. Sunday's are 1:00 p.m. until sunset. 

 Large groups please call to reserve your time. 325-677-6815
