Get your pumpkins at the Wilshire Rotary Pumpkin Patch Sat., Oct. 15 to Sun., Oct. 30 at 568 N. Larchmont Blvd. Hours are 3 p.m. until dark on weekdays and 9 a.m. until dark on weekends.
Carnival games, food and live music will be featured the last day of the patch, starting at 2 p.m. Country-rock band the Cheatin’ Kind will perform at the hoedown.
“It was a lot of fun last year,” said Rotary fundraising chair Wendy Clifford.
The Rotary’s Christmas tree lot opens Sat., Nov. 26 and continues through Fri., Dec. 23. Nobles and Douglas firs in all sizes will be arriving fresh from Oregon. “They cut them, load them up and bring them down. We have a really good source,” said Wendy. Wreaths and garlands will also be available for purchase.
Proceeds from both the Pumpkin Patch and tree lot benefit charities and community service projects here and abroad through the Wilshire Rotary Foundation and Rotary International Foundation.
