The autumn months mean time for pumpkin patches ... made of glass!
 
The Tacoma Glassblowing Studio has been busy creating glass pumpkins of various sizes and colors for the Northwest Glass Pumpkin Patch, Sept. 24 to Nov. 5. 
The pumpkin patch features 1,000 hand-blown glass pumpkins, some as tall as 16 inches and some as small as four inches. Pick a truly original pumpkin that is perfect for fall, but unique enough to be displayed year round.
 
The mobile pumpkin patch provides three opportunities to visit and shop the local creations:
 
  • Sept. 24: 9 a.m.-4 p.m., Gig Harbor Uptown Shopping Center
  • Oct. 15: 9 a.m.-2 p.m., Pagoda at Point Defiance Park, Tacoma
  • Oct. 29, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., Puyallup Pioneer Park Pavilion
 
Additionally there are three opportunities for visitors to create their own pumpkins at the Tacoma Glass Blowing Studio. Available dates are Sept. 11, Oct. 8 and Oct. 30. Learn More
