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.”
