One of the great reasons to live in Hancock Park is the annual Pumpkin Patch by the Wilshire Rotary Club! It is open at 568 N. Larchmont Blvd and runs through October 20th. Weekend hours are 10am to 6pm and Weekdays are 2 to 6pm. Come with your kids and friends and have lots of fun!!
The Rotary Club members are personally picking pumpkins at a farm in Fillmore. This year they have 30,000lb of pumpkins to sell! The pumpkin patch sells “mini to giant pumpkins and everything in between”, according to Wendy Clifford, head of the Rotary pumpkin patch. While looking for the perfect pumpkin, shoppers can participate in a scavenger hunt throughout the lot.
The Rotary has been selling pumpkins at this Larchmont location for 16 years!! The money raised goes right back to the community, with donations directed to Operation School Bell, Red Shield of the Salvation Army, and the visually impaired students at Van Ness Elementary School.
Next at this location, the Rotary will be selling Christmas trees, starting Fri., Nov. 25.
