In addition to pumpkin patches galore, here’s some more weekend happenings:

Young Gardeners Story Time at the Center for Urban Horticulture

The theme this week is fall fruit with books about apples, pears, and bananas. I’m not sure how bananas qualify as fall fruit, but it’s all good, I guess. The stories are followed by a hands-on activity.

10/11, 10-11am, Elisabeth C. Miller Library

Kelsey Creek Farm Fair

Fall farm fun with pony rides, hayrides, kid’s crafts, and pumpkin decorations. Live entertainment by Cowboy Buck.
