The City of Richmond’s time-held tradition of setting pumpkins afloat in The Plunge is returning this month, as sure as Halloween gets marked on every kiddo’s calendar.
The City welcomes families to its annual Floating Pumpkin Patch Sat., Oct. 22 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. at the Richmond Plunge, when little goblins can take a dip in the indoor pool while searching for their favorite pumpkin. Once kiddos pick their perfect pumpkin, they can stay and splash around for some more fun.
Admission to the Floating Pumpkin Patch is $8 for residents and $9 for non-residents and includes—you guessed it—a pumpkin. “All children 8 and under require an adult to be in the water with them and swimwear is required to get in the pool,” according to City organizers, who also suggest viewing the pool’s website to review additional pool rules.
The Richmond Plunge is located at 1 East Richmond Ave. in Point Richmond. Questions? Contact (510) 620-6820.
