Drayden Dobell picked one of the many pumpkins grown by community gardeners for the children.
“I got a big one,” he said.
He and the other students enjoyed tracking through a straw bale maze set up by Grant Union High School FFA.
“I like it,” Dobell said. “You can hide in the maze and run around.”
Briar Burril said playing hide and seek in the maze was fun.
Thomas Shaw also enjoyed the maze, and said he found a spider — not a real one.
Kindergarten teacher Becky Rhinehart said a parent decorated the maze that morning. The embellishments included friendly looking spiders, pumpkins and a mummy.
Rhinehart and Adriane Ineck’s classes, as well as a few younger children, joined in the fall fun.
This is their third year visiting the pumpkin patch and the second year they’ve had the maze, Rhinehart said.
“It’s an opportunity for them to get out and be kids,” she said. “They get to pick out their own pumpkin and they also have apple cider and popcorn.”
