An annual Autumn tradition has returned to West Andrew Johnson Highway as the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church is hosting its annual Pumpkin Patch.
The patch is open daily from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m.; it opens at 1 p.m. on Sundays.
Pumpkins of all sizes and some of unusual shape and color will be available.
All proceeds benefit a local charity and this year’s funds will go to Friends of Hospice, mainly the Serenity House.
The annual Pumpkin Festival will be held on Saturday. Oct. 18 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
Dozens of crafters and artisans will participate. Activities are planned for children and home-baked goods will be available for purchase.
An added treat this year will be the Great Pumpkin Cade where shoppers can relax, eat a lunch selected from homemade barbecue, hot dogs, chips, drinks and a dessert.
Items available at the festival will include greeting and note cards, multiple styles of paintings and drawings, home grown herbs, fall decorations, knitting, crochet, handmade soaps, lotions, aprons purses and a lot more handmade by Tennessee crafters.
