Harvest Supper this Friday supports the Pumpkin Patch playground
It’s time to come together again as a city and do what we do best—save a piece of our history and make sure many kids to come can have the same fond memories.
Reviving the Pumpkin Patch Playground after 20 years of loving use will be no small feat, but we’re up for it.
Chattanooga natives will understand the gleam in my eye when I mention the Signal Mountain Pumpkin Patch. As a kid who lived out in Collegedale, visiting that spectacular kingdom was a rare and privileged event.
There, I had the run of replicas of city landmarks like the Walking Bridge, and there were always plenty of other kids to play with.
The plan is to raise enough money to help a team of family volunteers renovate the site and hopefully add a few new structures.
How can you help? Start by attending a Harvest Supper this Friday at 6 p.m. at McCoy Farm up in Walden, which will feature a bluegrass band and cooking by a local chef.
Tickets are only available in advance through pumpkinpatchplayground.org, so make sure to buy yours in time to be a part of this piece of history.
