Halloween is just around the corner and only 11 days remain for residents and visitors to enjoy the Miami Lakes United Methodist Church’s 20th Annual Pumpkin Patch at 14800 N.W. 67 Avenue on the corner of Miami Lakes Drive and Ludlum Road. 

The patch is open daily until October 31, with free admission on weekdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and $3 admission for adults after 4 p.m. on weekdays and all day on weekends. Children 12 and under are free with the paid admission of one adult ticket. The $3 admission may be applied toward any pumpkin or gourd purchase.  

The final Pumpkin truckloads arrive October 18, and 25. Arrivals are planned for 4 p.m. Students in need of volunteer hours can call 305-821-7274 or email Pumpkins of all sizes will be available for purchase along with decorative gourds of all shapes and related retail items.

Outdoor Movie Night will be every Friday beginning at sundown. Movies are free. Snacks and drinks will be available for purchase.

Photo opportunities abound at the Pumpkin Patch and there are new additions this year including the Pumpkin Princess Carriage and the “new” 100-year-old hay wagon. 

Flanigan’s Dinner and Show of Illusion is on Saturday, October 21. Dinner seating times are 5 and 7:30 p.m. and due to limited availability, seats are chosen at time of purchase. The Show of Illusion is scheduled in between from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. and ticket purchase covers dinner and show. 

Advance purchase price for adults is $12 (ages 13 and up) and $6 for children (ages 12 and under). Dinner and show tickets purchased at the door will cost $1 more: $13 per adult / $7 per child. For advance purchase of Dinner and Show tickets, visit the church office or call 305-821-7274. Tickets will be available at the Pumpkin Patch Sales Center. Be sure to bring advance purchase ticket to the dinner to avoid having to pay more at the door.

Children can enjoy the brand new playground with tunnels and landings and obstacle course, along with jokes, songs, and science experiments. All activities are sure to entertain and educate children up through 4th grade.
