Breaking news in Winterville, GA: The GREAT PUMPKINÂ is spotted near Town Square. The city of Marigolds has been invaded by a giant orange melon as big as a storage building and numerous smaller collaborators!
Linus believed in the Great Pumpkin in Charles M. Schulz’s comic strip Peanuts. Anyone passing by the huge display of pumpkins on the grounds of Winterville United Methodist Church near the depot on
N. Main Street can actually see the Great Pumpkin now through October 31. For church members, the annual “Pumpkins R Us” project is a fundraiser. Schools may schedule class field trips. All visitors can have their photos taken and will receive a free handout. On October 22, the church will sponsor a Fall Festival among the pumpkins. The festival will include baked goods for sale and other activities.
These pumpkins, which are perfect for carving or making into delicious pies and breads, are for sale. Miniature pumpkins go for just $.50 and many other sizes are available at various prices.
The Great Pumpkin and his/her minions rule right now in the little town of Winterville, Georgia. But only for the next few days. If you’re interested in staking your claim to the perfect pumpkin for the Halloween season, get to the WUMC pumpkin patch soon. This is a limited time invasion. Sometime between now and Halloween, the Great Pumpkin and all the other pumpkins will disappear!
