Pumpkin Patch Opens Monday

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

Halloween is right around the corner and the First Alliance Church is getting its pumpkin patch prepared.

It's the tenth year for the church's pumpkin patch. Organizers say proceeds benefit community services, like programs at the Montana Rescue Mission and lunch for students at West High. Organizers say it's also a fun way to help at-risk youth in the community.

"We just appreciate the support from our Billings community," said Kirk Osterdyk, First Alliance youth coordinator. "We have a lot of people that come here. We're known as the pumpkin church, which is kind of silly, but I think it's great. And we just want to be able to continue to impact the community that we live in."

Organizers say some of the pumpkins are arriving Sunday. Gourds are locally grown and new this year are specialty pumpkins.

Sales are from 12 p.m. to dusk Mondays through Fridays, 10 a.m. to dusk on Saturdays, and 1p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays.
