Pumpkin time is fast approaching and we are making plans for the 6th Annual Pumpkin Drive-Through in Rocky Face. Last Halloween we greeted 330 packed vehicles as they drove through to view the 85 carved jack-o-lanterns that lit up the woods.
This year Mount Vernon United Methodist Church along with local Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts are helping us surpass our previous records to make this Pumpkin Drive-Through grander than ever before.
Monday, Oct. 29, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Mount Vernon United Methodist Church in Rocky Face is sponsoring a Pumpkin Carnival organized by Girl Scouts. The Boy Scouts will direct traffic and will have their Rain Gutter Regatta set up for everyone to enjoy.
The carnival is open to the public, geared towards children K-5 and their families. The cost is $2 plus a can of food for an evening of fun and games. Bring a pumpkin or two and the Girl Scouts will help you gut them, carve them, and if you would like to donate one we will display your creation for everyone to see on Halloween Night at the 6th Annual Pumpkin Drive-Through.
The Drive-Through is held on Halloween night from 5:30 to 9. The address is 2705 Bradberry Hill Road, Rocky Face. This is a drive-through only. No walking allowed. There is no charge. Donations of pumpkins and candles are always welcome.
