A Lafayette pumpkin patch will not be opening on its projected opening date.

The Covenant United Methodist Church announced via Facebook that their pumpkin patch will open on a later date due to the amount of rainfall we have received in the last few weeks.

The grounds where the pumpkin patch is located is muddy and not suitable for visitors. Thus, the church is hoping for drier weather so that the ground can dry where the pumpkin patch is located (On East Martial Ave).

We will announce when the pumpkin patch opens as we know it has become a fixture in Lafayette as we approach Halloween.

Bring on the dry weather, but unfortunately, we have more rain in the forecast all next week.
