The Island Recreation Association Annual Pumpkin Patch
The Island Recreation Association doesn’t just fill Shelter Cove Community Park with pumpkins for their annual Pumpkin Patch event in October; they bring bounce houses, animals, costume contests and vendors out to the park for a day of fun. This Pumpkin Patch festival will have a field of pumpkins where kids can pick out, paint and decorate pumpkins. This annual event is known for its Halloween costume contest, in which kids are awarded for having the most original, funniest, scariest and the overall best costumes. There are also hayrides through the park, as well as face painting and other fun activities for kids. In past years there has even been petting zoos with pony rides and the chance for families to feed animals.
