Happenings: Spotlight

Each year hundreds of pumpkins take over the front lawn of Kessler Park United Methodist Church. They range from the 50-cent handheld size to $30 gourds that might appeal to Cinderella’s fairy godmother. The Kessler School Pumpkin Patch and Street Fair lasts from 9 a.m.-3 p.m., allowing plenty of time to shop at artists’ booths, patronize neighborhood food vendors, and let the kids ride a pony or jump in the bounce house. Find your fall décor and simultaneously benefit a neighborhood school, plus, grab some breakfast or a cup of coffee before heading to the Old Oak Cliff Conservation League Fall Home Tour. Corner of Turner and Colorado.
