We are very excited to announce that Nelson's Pumpkin Patch will continue to be the exclusive eastern North Dakota site to host the nationally recognized  “Spookley the Square Pumpkin” program.

With October being National Bullying Prevention Month, Spookley is the Official   Spokes-Pumpkin, to help raise awareness for bullying prevention. Spookley will be   featured during both September and October at Nelson's Pumpkin Patch to help our  littlest visitors understand the importance of being tolerant and kind.

We are sure you will LOVE this addition to our Fall Field Trips which have always been much more than just “a trip to the pumpkin patch.”

Go to Spookley's official site and register for free lesson sheets and activities.
