Pumpkin Patch Returns to Southold Historical Society

Thursday, October 29 – Saturday, October 31

Southold Historical Society Museum Complex 

The popular Pumpkin Patch is returning to the Southold Historical Society Museum Complex for 2020. From October 29 through October 31, the community is invited to drop off their carved pumpkins to the Museum Complex grounds. The Society will be providing battery-operated tea light candles to illuminate the jack-o-lanterns as well as small, non-food treats for families.

Society Executive Director, Deanna Witte-Walker states, “During difficult times, it is especially important to host programs that contribute to community spirit. We are hoping the Pumpkin Patch will bring a smile to participants and passersby.”

Everyone is welcome to participate. Pick up a pumpkin at your local farm stand or merchant; bring it home to carve; and drop off your jack-o-lantern at Southold Historical Society’s Museum Complex between 3pm and 5pm on October 29, October 30 or October 31. Then come back in the evening to see the historic complex ablaze with a collection of illuminated pumpkins. Participants are welcomed to pick their jack-o-lanterns up at any time thereafter, or the Society will make arrangements for removal.

This is a free community event sponsored by the Southold Historical Society. Donations are welcomed.
