Hope Pumpkin Patch

This is THE place to go for all things fall in Miami Dade county!  Come see why this pumpkin patch has been voted as one of the top ones in Miami and all of South Florida (by New Times & CBS).  The Hope Miami Lakes United Methodist Church receives three full truckloads of pumpkins starting on October 4. A truckload contains over 2000 pumpkins and weighs over 43,000 pounds! You must come, bring your children and check out all that is planned. The Patch is open daily from 10:00am – 9:00pm so come by and say “hi”.
