Harvesting Fun for UNM Children's Hospital

Families will have the opportunity to gather supplies for Halloween, get lost in a 15-acre corn maze and enjoy hay rides, all while helping the children at the UNM Children's Hospital.

In a promotion to raise funds for the UNM Children's Hospital (a Children's Miracle Network Hospital), McCall' s Pumpkin Patch will be contributing one dollar from every ticket purchased with a coupon or the mention of UNM Children's Hospital. This special promotion will run only for the weekend of October 2 and 3.

McCall's Pumpkin Patch Manager Kirsten McCall said that she looks forward to helping Children's Miracle Network and UNM Children's Hospital. "We've heard great things about Children's Miracle Network and we are happy to help them out."

At McCall's Pumpkin Patch, families can enjoy finding that perfect pumpkin and explore attractions like the Mining Town, Pumpkin Sling Shot, Calf Roping and Animal Alley. For the little ones, the farm offers the Kids' Korral, the Cow Train, the Pumpkin Jump and several small mazes. Tickets cost $8 for adults and $6 for children without the coupon. Coupons for this special promotion can be found on-line at:
