CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - It’s a family outing for the Halloween season without driving to Colorado.

Locals can stop by the local church to get their holiday pumpkin for a cause.

The pumpkin patch on the front lawn of the First United Methodist Church is part of their annual fund-raiser.

They use the funds for their Guatemala mission team, the youth group mission projects, and pre-school scholarships.

The annual event has been going on for 20 years. The pumpkins come from Anderson farm in Alt.

The variety of pumpkins, squash and gourds vary in prices, starting at 50 cents a pound.

" I am anticipating that we are going to sell out very soon. So if people want pumpkins from our patch they probably need to be here by monday at the latest,” said Angela Sellers- Swanson, Director of Family Ministries for the First United Methodist Church.

The pumpkin patch runs Monday through Friday from 3 to 6 pm. and Saturday and Sunday from 9 to 6 pm.
