Shriner’s annual Pumpkin Patch a fall delight
Event at Bryant Commons raises funds for good causes
Patch 1

Saturday, the Shriners of Fort Stewart/Hinesville hosted a pumpkin patch at Bryant Commons that saw a steady stream of visitors from the time it opened at 10 a.m. and throughout the day until it closed at 2 p.m. 

With proceeds from pumpkin sales benefiting the Shriners International philanthropic projects, big, orange gourds covered the ground against the red barn for a picturesque fall photo backdrop.

But there was more to see than pumpkins Saturday as lawn games like four-square, corn hole, and hula hoops and crafts were available for children and adults. 

Bounce houses for different age groups were continually full of eager children who kept the place jumping, and food vendors sold snow cones and fair fare under the pavilion. Attendees could also enjoy a hayride or a game of soccer in a zorbing ball. 

The event was free to the public and set the tone for the upcoming Scarecrow Stroll and Beggars Night scheduled for Friday, Oct. 25 from 5 to 7 p.m. in downtown Hinesville.
