In its third annual pumpkin patch, Broward Health Coral Springs helped thousands of families with young children welcome Halloween, by opting for a drive-thru experience.
Pumpkin Patch Lane, with its costumed superheroes, clowns, and live music, was presented by the Broward Health Salah Foundation Children’s Hospital.
Around 5,000 people registered for the October 17 event and over 1,500 pumpkins went out to cars making their way through.
“The looks of wonder on the children’s faces were priceless. Many thanks to all our volunteers, we couldn’t have done it without you,” said hospital spokesperson Diana Guayana, who added she was impressed by the great turnout.
This was also the first year their sister hospital in Ft. Lauderdale hosted the same event, so there were enough pumpkins and treats to go around at both the east and west locations.
“This year we accommodated it to be COVID-safe by having a drive-thru, but that did not deter from the fun at all, “ she said.
Pictures snapped at the autumn event show kids taking in street dancing from their parents’ cars, and learning pumpkin facts as they drove past crazy hand-painted signs.
They enjoyed the antics of therapy dogs, clowns, superheroes, and Pumpkin Patch Lane itself, all decked out for fall.
Their excitement as each car made its way to the finish line for Halloween treats, and a great big pumpkin was palpable.
