The Eighth Annual Milpitas Rotary Pumpkin Patch is creaking open, kicking off 12 days of Halloween horror and fun for local families and children.
Milpitas Rotary's Community Pumpkin Patch opens at 5:00 p.m., Friday, October 19, and will be open daily through Tuesday, October 30. Hours of operation are 11 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays and 5:00 p.m to 8:00 p.m. on weekdays.
Conveniently located on E. Calaveras Boulevard near N. Park Victoria Drive in the parking lot of the School District and Sports Center behind the Shell Station. Our patch is far from just a place to pick out a great pumpkin. Our patch also features a giant slide, jump houses, and a scary haunted maze. It's also a great place to snap a family photo - especially if you come in costume!
Local schools will be venturing out to the pumpkin patch for field trips, to experience the Halloween fun.
In addition to Rotary Club members, nearly 20 Milpitas High School Rotary Interact Club members are volunteering to help run the pumpkin patch.
Funds raised support scholarships and leadership camp for Milpitas High and Cal Hills High school students.
