LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Autumn is in the air and with it, come the pumpkin patches.
The 10th annual Congress Street Church kicked off it's pumpkin sale today in Lafayette.
Aside from pumpkins, people can buy mums and pumpkin bread. Church members baked more than 7,000 cookies. Proceeds from the sale will go to area food pantries, animal shelters and the YWCA.
Chairwoman Patsy Krieg said pumpkins are a huge part of our country's heritage.
"I think it brings back the Pilrams from a long, long time ago," said Krieg. "It's one of our glorious traditions, like Christmas trees."
The pumpkin patch is open daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., rain or shine, until October 31.
The patch is located on Congress Street across from Loeb Stadium.
