The Richmond Plunge is welcoming community members to dive into the festive spirit Sat., Oct. 28 when its “Floating Pumpkin Patch” event returns a black cat’s hair before Halloween.

A singularly Richmond event, the Floating Pumpkin Patch encourages kiddos to wade into the water to pick their own pumpkin to take home, included in the price of admission ($10 per child resident and $7 for adult residents age 18 and older).

Community members can choose a splashy pumpkin-picking time from two available one-hour sessions starting at 1:15 p.m. or 2:30 p.m. at the Plunge.

“Get ready to float, pick your pumpkin and enjoy a memorable day of autumn fun,” stated the City of Richmond on behalf of the Plunge.

Important to note is that kiddos age 8 and under must be accompanied by an adult in the pool, while children age 9 and above need to have a supervising adult present, per the Plunge.

Also, all community members entering the pool/floating pumpkin patch should purchase admission. The Plunge said that non-swimmers are also required to register and pay the $2.50 non-swimmer fee.
