Boise Fire Station #10 Pumpkin Patch to Benefit Community Assistance Fund

The Boise Fire Pumpkin Patch has been a fall tradition at Station #10 for eleven years. This year, the pumpkin patch is raising money to benefit our Community Assistance Fund. 

"This event involves several months of planning, with many involved to make sure it comes together. All of the hard work is worth it when we see the families having fun picking out their favorite pumpkin. We are hauling in plenty of great pumpkins this year, but be sure to get here early to pick the best one! Last year was set to be the final year for putting this event on, however due to the popularity of the pumpkin patch we could not bear to see it end," said Boise Firefighter and event organizer Stephen Procedo.

When: Saturday, Oct. 06 from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Media preview October 05, call to arrange a time.

Where: Boise Fire Station #10 back lot, 12065 West McMillan Road. Carpooling is encouraged as parking is available, but limited. Overflow parking provided by the bank located to the west of the station.

Cost: Events and pumpkins are free with your donation to the Community Assistance Fund.
