Find the Perfect Pumpkin

Before Courtney Jade Davis died in 2008 of a rare bone cancer, the teen organized a pumpkin patch to raise scholarship money for students at her school, Cloverdale High. Courtney’s Pumpkin Patch continues to raise funds for local students, as well as cancer patients and the Kiwanis Club. This year’s event will be held in concert with Oktoberfest, where not only pumpkins, but also live music, vendors, Bavarian dancers, crafts, games, and food and drink will be part of the afternoon. In addition, there’ll be special activities for kids, including a Halloween bouncy house, balloon twisting, face painting, and a magic show. The pumpkin patch and festival will be held on October 5, noon–7 p.m., at the Cloverdale Plaza in Cloverdale. Admission is free. See for more information.
