Pumpkin Patch In The Pool
Tired of searching those dusty fields for your perfect pumpkin to decorate? We are too. We've put a fun spin on the tradition by creating a patch in the pool just for you! So, don't forget your suit, towel, and friends. Make an evening of it! Hunt for your perfect pumpkin in one of our pools with the corresponding number you are assigned. Decorating stations will be placed around the pool deck. Join us for an open swim following the event! Registration is required to receive and decorate a pumpkin.
