Myers Pumpkin Patch hosting Walters State Night on October 22

Myers Pumpkin Patch will host Walters State Night on Thursday, October 22, from 4:00 PM to 9:00 PM. Join alumni, students, faculty and staff in safely celebrating fall.

Advance tickets are $10 and are good for one of four nights: October 22 through October 25. Tickets can be purchased by contacting Jonathan Nash, assistant director of alumni affairs, at 585-6976. Advanced tickets may be purchased through Wednesday, October 21.

Tickets at the gate will be $15 and include a corn maze, a hayride and a hot dog dinner. A portion of ticket prices will fund Walters State Foundation scholarships.

Eldon and Vera Ann Myers, who first created the Pumpkin Patch as an educational field trip, have long supported Walters State by hosting agricultural students for lab sessions. Son Ethan is an alumnus.

New activities are added every year, but Myers said the 24-acre corn maze with three levels of difficulty remains the most popular event.

Tickets may be picked up at any campus, but arrangements must first be made with Nash in accordance with the college’s COVID-19 policy.
