It’s been a sign of the season for years – the corner of Jefferson and Albert Vera Drive lit up with signs, lights, and plenty of pumpkins. This year, Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch will not be setting up due to the pandemic. “Due to the current rate of infection in L.A., Mr. Bones will not be opening the pumpkin patch this season, but we will be here to help you create your own spooky fun, pumpkin patch experience.”
The pumpkin village has been an annual event in Culver City since 1987, offering a petting zoo and pony rides for children.
The seasonal business plans to pivot online with pick-up and delivery options and virtual events.”Mr. Bones @ Home” will launch on Oct. 3 with pumpkins and other Halloween supplies available for pick-up or delivery, along with a roster of such offerings as live music and pumpkin carving on social-media.
UPDATE – “After careful thought and planning, we have realized that we will not be able to open in any capacity in 2020 as we had hoped,” offered an announcement on Social Media for Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch on Friday, September 25, 2020. “The pieces did not fall together in the way that we had planned. Unfortunately we won’t be opening this year in any capacity.”
