Notice that shine on the apples? And the glint in every Jack O’ Lantern eye? It is time for Pumpkin Patch – Egg Harbor’s annual fall extravaganza on October 12 and 13. Pumpkin Patch is a pleaser for every age with entertainment, carnival rides, arts and craft vendors, pumpkin displays, great food and more.

Saturday morning kicks off in Harbor View Park with a silent auction that will run from 10 am – 4:30 pm with a wide variety of items from local businesses up for bid. The fun continues in the park Saturday and Sunday with live music and tasty food. Delicious brats, roasted sweet corn, caramel apples, and kettle corn are just a few of the options to enjoy during the weekend.

Stroll through the village to take in imaginative pumpkin displays staged by local merchants. Browse the many arts and craft vendors, located in Baylake Bank parking lot. From handmade jewelry, soap, sculptures and clothing, you should be able to make a dent in your holiday shopping.

Surprise the kids with a trip to Dock Park for carnival rides, giant inflatables and face painting. Enjoy children’s storytelling, the roaming magician, and live music that is sure to get the little ones dancing.

Don’t forget to visit all the local stores for other unique items and end-of-season deals. Finish the day off at one of the many local eateries with menu options to satisfy any taste bud. Bring the whole family and partake in a Door County tradition that is sure to make you smile.
