The unpredictable weather did not deter faithful fest goers from attending Egg Harbor’s 33rd annual Pumpkin Patch Fest on Saturday. While a fierce wind whipped through downtown Egg Harbor fest goers danced and partied the day away. Attendees hailed from all over the midwest and several even embraced the Halloween aspect of Pumpkin Patch. Courtney Chavez has been coming to Pumpkin Patch with the same group of friends for the past eight years. She says there is so much to do each year and her and her friends just cannot stay away.
Day two of Pumpkin Patch begins on Sunday at 10:00 am and runs till 4:00. Those interested in attending should plan to park at least a half mile away from the city center due to roads closed near Stella Maris Catholic Church.
