Pumpkin Patch

From October 20 through 29, The Buggy Bunch, which builds bonds among local moms and families, will once again provide tons of fall fun at its annual Pumpkin Patch. The Church of Christ on State Road 60 will serve as the venue. Little ones will enjoy a kiddie corral, corn pit, and more, and pumpkins will be available for purchase. The weekend of the 28th and 29th will be Family Fun Days, with hayrides, games, a bounce house, giant slide, inflatable obstacle course, and food. The fun days are free to enter, but the cost to participate in all the activities is $10 per child and $5 per adult. Don’t worry, big families—there’s a maximum of $30 per family! Patch hours are Monday through Friday 3 to 7 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday noon to 5 p.m. The Buggy Bunch can be reached at 772-226-0066 or thebuggybunch.com.

Duck Derby

It’s time for the Great Duck Derby! Treasure Coast Community Health will hold its annual fundraiser at Capt. Hiram’s Sandbar in Sebastian October 22 from noon to 4 p.m. Sponsor a rubber duck (just like the kind Ernie had) for $5 and, if you’d like, come out and watch it race 7,499 of its friends in the Indian River Lagoon. In addition to prizes of $1,000 for first place, $500 for second, and $250 for third, one lucky duck that wins the race and matches the preselected number will win $30,000 in honor of TCCH’s 30th anniversary.
