HAPPY CUSTOMERS from last year include (from left) James Gips, Anne Gips holding Lucy, and Archie Gips. In front is Kari Gips (daughter of Wendy Clifford), and at right is Lizzie Leader.

Choose gourds and ornamental corn for your harvest centerpieces, and pick out the best pumpkin for your Jack-o-lantern this month while supporting Wilshire Rotary Club at the pumpkin patch at 568 N. Larchmont Blvd.

The patch is open Sat., Oct. 6 through Sun., Oct. 30 or whenever the pumpkins sell out. Hours are 2 to 6 p.m. on weekdays, and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends.

People can choose from an array of pumpkins, squash, gourds and ornamental corn sourced from a farm in Santa Paula.

A petting zoo, including an alpaca and farm animals, will visit the patch Sun., Oct. 14 from 2 to 4 p.m.

Back by popular demand, the Halloween Hoedown with live country and bluegrass music by Rob Faucette and the C Words (“c” stands for country) will perform on Sun., Oct. 21 from 2 to 4 p.m. There will also be food and beverages available for purchase.

Every day, there will be a bounce house on site for kids to enjoy before and after picking out pumpkins, as well as a prize wheel, according to organizer Wendy Clifford, Larchmont Village.

Every year, Wilshire Rotary also donates a truckload of pumpkins to the Camp Pendleton Halloween carnival. “This year, we would like to donate two truckloads, so every child gets a pumpkin,” said Clifford. “For a $2 donation, we will put a tag on a pumpkin for you.”

Trees coming

The Rotary’s Christmas tree lot will return to this same Larchmont Blvd. location after Thanksgiving.

Proceeds from both the pumpkin patch and the Christmas tree lot benefit charities and community service projects here and abroad through the Wilshire Rotary Foundation and Rotary International Foundation.
