Pumpkins crop up at Piñon Elementary

By Special to the Monitor

Fall is officially here and that means it’s time for Piñon Elementary’s Annual Pumpkin Patch.
This year’s Pumpkin Patch will be from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Oct. 23. This is Piñon Parent Teacher Organization’s fifth year of hosting the community event.
“The Pumpkin Patch grows a little bit bigger and more exciting every year and this looks to be our best year yet,” said Kelly Benner, president of the Pumpkin Patch committee.
As the name suggests, the school’s playground will be turned into a huge pumpkin patch. This allows children (and adults) to wander through and pick out their perfect pumpkin.
Not only will Piñon’s PTO sell pumpkins, the event has now turned into a family festival, as well. This year the event will include a large climbing wall, a bouncy house, games, crafts, face painting, a maze, a pie contest and much more. Tickets to participate in the individual games, crafts and activities will be sold for a fee.
Last year, Kenny’s North Carolina BBQ was a big hit, so he’ll be back this year with both breakfast and lunch items.
“We really appreciate Kenny being there, not only does he provide great food, but he makes a generous donation to Piñon PTO,” Benner said.
