Panama City, FL –
PANAMA CITY BEACH, Florida (WMBB) – The Camp Helen State Park pumpkin is back for its sixth year.
The pumpkins, which came from North Carolina, arrived later than expected, but Friends of Camp Helen State Park executive director Courtney Harper said despite the delay, the patch is already breaking records.
“The patch opened just two days ago and we have already had the most visitors we have ever had,” said Harper. “For the first time, we are also receiving a second shipment, and we will know the date soon. “
Harper said pumpkins come in all shapes and sizes, and it’s best to bring a cart for easy transport.
“The price of pumpkins varies depending on the size. We measure them to get an accurate price, but the pumpkins start at just a dollar and can go up to around $ 30, ”Harper said.
The Pumpkin Patch will also have fun fall events for all ages.
“There will be cart rides, maze, games, prizes and food trucks here on Saturday,” Harper said.
Camp Helen officials will also be hosting a movie night on October 23 at 6.30 p.m. where they will present Hocus Pocus.
All the money earned in the patch also goes to the park.
“All the money made in this pumpkin patch goes towards improving the park. This allowed us to clean up some areas and repair the roofs of the buildings, ”said Harper.
The Pumpkin Patch is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
