STARworks Center for Creative Enterprise in Star, NC, Offers 1,000 Glass Pumpkins - Oct. 5, 2013

Hand-blown glass pumpkins will be ready to harvest at the STARworks Glass Pumpkin Patch on Oct. 5, 2013, from 9am to 1pm, at STARworks Center for Creative Enterprise in Star, NC. This is the only time of year the popular glass pumpkins are available.

More than 1,000 pumpkins in all colors, shapes and sizes will be ripe for the picking and available for purchase. Each one a unique work of art, the pumpkins will be displayed on hay bales in the grassy area in front of STARworks Center for Creative Enterprise. If the weather is bad, the Pumpkin Patch will be moved inside to STARworks Gallery.

Proceeds from the event help fund STARworks Glass programs.

“The Pumpkin Patch is our biggest fundraiser of the year,” said Central Park NC Executive Director Nancy Gottovi. “The event starts at 9am and they go fast. We will have more pumpkins available this year than we did last year, but we still encourage people to show up early for the best possible selection.”

Pumpkins cannot be reserved and will not be available for purchase before the Pumpkin Patch in order to guarantee the largest selection possible for the event. If there are pumpkins remaining after the event, they will be available at STARworks until they are all sold.

Vendors from the Montgomery County Farmers Market will set up booths and offer hot beverages, snacks and other locally grown produce and homemade goodies during the Pumpkin Patch.

STARworks is a Central Park NC project. Central Park NC is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the economy of the region by focusing on natural and cultural resources.

STARworks is located at 100 Russell Drive in Star, just off I-73/74 in northern Montgomery County.
