October 29 marked the fourth annual pumpkin patch for Franklin Township residents seeking fall spirit, community, and loads of excitement.

Children of various ages attended with their families, decorating pumpkins, attempting boo bowling, dressing up in their costumes, competing in musical chairs and experiencing a wild amount of festival fall.

The pumpkin patch marks the celebration of fall and Halloween. To some, the Pumpkin Patch is a reminder of the lovely recreational work of Franklin.

Avery, 6, said, “There’s so much going on, I can’t wait.” Eager children raced through the park, grabbing apple cider, provided by the Franklin Township Youth Council who hosted this event.

A judging panel was assembled for the best costumes. First place was awarded to a 6-year-old boy dressed as fire. Some costumes were homemade while others were store-bought. A 9-year-old who proudly wore her Mario outfit that she and her mother assembled.
