This is THE place to go for all things fall in Miami Dade county!  Come see why this pumpkin patch has been voted as one of the top ones in Miami and all of South Florida (by New Times & CBS).  The Miami Lakes United Methodist Church receives three full truckloads of pumpkins on October 10th, October 24th,  and October 28th. A truckload contains over 2000 pumpkins and weighs over 43,000 pounds! You must come, bring your children and check out all that is planned. The Patch is open daily from 10:00am – 9:00pm so come by and say “hi”.

The Pumpkin Patch has grown so popular that we have extended it by a whole week. This year we open Saturday, September 29th and run straight through to Halloween on Wednesday, October 31.

The pumpkins arrive around 4:00pm on the following dates:
• Friday, October 28
• Wednesday, October 10
• Wednesday, October 24
Students needing volunteer hours are welcome to help unload. Please call and let us know you are coming 305-821-7274 or email

Children 12 years old and under are admitted free with a paying adult. No matter when you decide to come the admission price includes a $3 Pumpkin Buck that may be applied toward any pumpkin or gourd purchase. (It is not valid for any other purchase.)

What to Expect? Pumpkins of all sizes will be available for purchase along with decorative gourds of all shapes and related retail items.

Just wait until you see our new Princess Carriage!
