Get ready for the Catholic Pumpkin Patch!

October brings a stunning spray of orange that covers the lawn of Mary, Queen of Peace Parish in south Bossier.  The parishoners of Mary, Queen of Peace, under the leadership of Deacon Michael Straub, are hosting the 4th Annual Pumpkin Patch in an effort to support the church’s various youth programs.  Fellowship abounds as community members pile in and peruse the patch for that perfect, picturesque pumpkin.  Please consider visiting our patch.

We are located five miles south of the Jimmie Davis Highway in Bossier City.  We will be open for the duration of October, even through Halloween evening.  Visit us beginning Oct. 5 during the hours of 11:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.  We will be open on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m., and on Sundays, our hours will be noon – 7:00 p.m.

Don’t forget our Pumpkin Patch Carnival on Saturday, Oct. 25 from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.  For only $3 admission, children can enjoy all the trunk or treating and games they can stand!  We will also have burgers, hot dogs, cotton candy and other delicious treats.  Adults will enjoy  our large craft booth with various arts and crafts, edible goodies, canned jellies and jams, and plants.  This will be a great opportunity to do some Christmas shopping while enjoying the fall atmosphere of the pumpkin patch.

Come join us for the annual fun, and don’t forget to wear your costumes!
