First City Art Center's 11th annual Pumpkin Patch
PENSACOLA, Fla. (WEAR) —
'Tis the season for fall decor. You can find that and more at the 11th annual Glass Pumpkin Patch at the First City Art Center this weekend.
The event features 4,300 glass and pottery pumpkins and 50 different artists. Twenty-five of those artists are glass blowers and 25 are potters.
Pumpkin patch organizer Tim Nolan said the event grows every year. We asked him why the pumpkins were so popular.
"We're still trying to figure out what the fascination is but we know that the pumpkins are very popular and we're thankful for the loyaty of our customers," he said.
First City Art Center's Pumpkin Patch kicks off Saturday Oct 14th from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. It will take place at the FCAC campus at 1060 N. Guillemard Street.
There will be glass and clay pumpkins, food and alcohol and activities for children. Proceeds from sales will go towards programming and the facility, according to First City art director, Caitlin Rhea.
