Pumpkin fever sweeping over Humble
- Written by Joel Franks
It is that time once again to bring out that Halloween spirit and get ready for some pumpkin carving. Now through Nov. 1, First United Methodist Church in Humble will be holding their second annual Pumpkin Patch and Craft Fair for the community. The church acquires the pumpkins from a Navajo Indian reservation in New Mexico. Producing pumpkins since the ‘60’s, they only sell to churches. The earnings will go to the reservation and the Children’s Weekday Ministry. There will be pumpkins in all shapes and sizes ranging from 50 cents and up. Festivities for children will consist of face painting, story telling and seed planting. There will be staged photo areas for picture taking. On Oct. 25, there will be an arts and craft show, and on Oct. 31 from 6-8 p.m., the church will be having a safe alternative to trick-or-treating. The night will be full of fun with indoor games, crafts, food, hayrides and much more. First United Methodist is known to give back to the community. Sharon Taylor, who runs the pumpkin patch, wants Humble and surrounding areas to know that the church is here for the community. Pumpkin patch hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday from 12:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. The church is located at 800 Main Street in Humble.
