Local Pumpkin Patches

Jesse Dominguez, 7, carries the pumpkin he chose from the patch at First Christian Church-Disciples of Christ in Texas City on Tuesday, Oct. 26, 2021. All of the pumpkins at the patch are grown by Native Americans on the Navajo Nation reservation in Farmington, New Mexico. They are purchased by the church and sold as a fundraiser.

This time last year, we were in the middle of a global pandemic in which we celebrated Halloween with virtual and scaled-back parties with safety protocols in place.

The 2021 Halloween holiday is gearing up to be much less “scary” than last year — but we must be mindful that COVID is still here, and precautions still must be taken.

Be particularly careful when driving on the island tonight. The sun sets right in alignment with our westward-looking streets this time of year - it can be blinding. The glare can make it hard to see little kids out in the streets.
