It is a family tradition that brings out the Halloween spirit in all. Attending a pumpkin patch is something people look forward to every year, and in Lake Arrowhead Village, people can enjoy the fun of Jack’s Pumpkin Patch.

Owner Jack Knight puts together the pumpkin patch every year as a way to enhance this October tradition. It is something special to the mountain community. There is something for everyone in the family to do, but the entertainment is mostly in seeing the children enjoy themselves. Running around enjoying the activities, observing and studying each pumpkin carefully before picking one, jumping in the jump houses and taking loads of themed photos is what a pumpkin patch is all about.

Jack’s Pumpkin Patch is now open in the Village, and will remain open every day through Halloween. The pumpkin patch opens daily at 10 a.m.

There are a variety of pumpkins available at the pumpkin patch, including small ones called Wee Be Littles and Big Mac pumpkins that can weigh more than 100 pounds. Visitors can find ornamental gourds, Indian corn, full-size straw bales, corn stalks and strawberry corn.

The giant pumpkin bounce house adds even more excitement for children, as well as a Batman bouncer with slides, a bounce area and an obstacle course. There is also a little farm bounce house that resembles a barn, perfect for toddlers to enjoy.

Visiting the pumpkin patch is admission free. “It is a great photo opportunity for families,” Knight said. “A lot of people get dressed up and take family photos.”

Preschool classes are welcomed to take a field trips to the pumpkin patch, and Knight makes sure to entertain the children by giving them a tour, and explaining the way a pumpkin grows. “We’ll look at the seeds and hand the pumpkin around,” Knight said. “Some hands will go into it, some won’t.”

Just like last year, members from the Rim cheer squad will work at the pumpkin patch, and part of the proceeds will go toward supporting the cheer program.

Picking the perfect pumpkin is a mission people set off on during this time of year, and getting in the spirit is easy at Jack’s Pumpkin Patch. With pumpkins of all sizes, each member of the family can go home with a pumpkin they feel represents them perfectly.
