RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Linus spent a night in a pumpkin patch, waiting for the Great Pumpkin, and you can, too, on Friday, Oct. 23, when Jesse Lee Memorial United Methodist Church hosts “Movies in the Pumpkin Patch.”
This free family event presents “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” and the VeggieTales’ “Where’s God When I’m S-Scared?” on a giant portable screen in the church’s sincere pumpkin patch.
Start time is 6:30 p.m. Each show is about 30 minutes long.
“Movies in the Pumpkin Patch” is for all ages, but is not a “drop-off” event. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
There will be free popcorn, but bring your own drinks. Also, so all can see, please leaves chairs at home and instead bring a blanket to sit on. In the event of rain, the movies will be shown in the church’s Martin Hall, in the lower level of Jesse Lee’s sanctuary building.
Jesse Lee Pumpkin Patch is a mission of Jesse Lee Memorial United Methodist Church. Operating annually from mid-September through Halloween Day, the patch sells pumpkins grown on a Navajo reservation in New Mexico. Proceeds from pumpkin sales support Jesse Lee outreach missions and the Navajo people.
Jesse Lee Memorial United Methodist Church is at 207 Main St. at Branchville Road in Ridgefield. For more information, call the church office at 203-438-8791.
