The Relay for Life Pumpkin Patch makes its annual debut this coming weekend in San Juan Bautista.

Saturday, Oct. 8, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Sunday, Oct. 9, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Visitors can wander the fields to find their perfect pumpkin. There will be a produce stand, a bake sale and a barbecue lunch available on-site.

The pumpkin patch is at the Ferry Morse Ranch on Highway 156 between Bixby and Lucy Brown roads. 

One hundred percent of the proceeds from this family event benefits the American Cancer Society.  Harvest Hope for a Cure is an annual, community-based pumpkin patch fundraiser that has generated more than $45,000 for the American Cancer Society.
