This has to be the most unusual venue for a pumpkin patch in the Triangle.
Meridian Waste is sponsoring a Charity Pumpkin Patch Saturdays in October, at Shotwell Landfill, 4724 Smithfield Road, Wendell.
The event takes place 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday in October, and is free to attend.
Suggested donations for pumpkins are $5 for a medium, $10 for a large, and $15 for an extra-large. All donations go to local non-profits, and Meridian Waste will match all donations.
There’s more to do besides pick out a pumpkin!
Enjoy Touch-a-Truck in the environmental services truck yard. Explore heavy-duty, earth-moving equipment such as:
- Articulated dump truck
- New front-loader garbage truck for the collection of non-hazardous waste materials
Also enjoy pumpkin painting and pumpkin tic-tac-toe.
Go on a hayride tour of the landfill!
There’s no charge for any of the activities, but the donations are encouraged for the pumpkins. Donations go to local non-profits such as The Bailey and Sarah Williamson Farm & Nature Preserve and the nearby Good Hope Baptist Church.
