St. Ambrose Catholic Church, at 380 S. Federal Hwy. in Deerfield Beach, has their pumpkins out, under the tent, just waiting to be purchased for the holiday. Whether you want to care a Jack-O-Lantern or simply bake a pumpkin pie, they have plenty of orange and white orbs to choose from.

This year, they had to go to a different place since the last farmer retired. This year’s crop came from Sexton Farms in North Carolina. Something else new this year is Heirloom Pumpkins. They still have the mini pumpkins along with the huge ones too. Pumpkins run 80 cents per pound. The white ones are $7.

The fun thing about their options is they not only have pumpkins, but also great items to decorate for any party, such as corn stalks (for $10) and haystacks ($8 or $20, depending on size). Prices on all items could vary.

“I am thankful for all the volunteers and all the time they give to the school,” said Principal Lisa Dodge.

Get your pumpkins soon because they go fast! It is great for the kids to come out and stroll through the variety available and it makes a perfect holiday photo opp. The tent is open 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
