Hundreds of residents flocked to the Environmental Nature Center over the weekend for autumn-themed fun.
The 44th Annual ENC Fall Faire and Pumpkin Patch was held Sunday at the Center, at 1601 E. 16th St.
“Be a part of your community while supporting environmental education,” officials encouraged in a recent announcement.
Faire fun included crafts, entertainment, a pumpkin patch, and food from local Orange County restaurants. Food and drink sponsors at the Fall Faire included Tavern House, Sprinkles, Sweet Shack, Mi Casa, Shirley’s Bagels, Bluewater Grill, Kean Coffee, and more.
As always, the most popular activity was hunting for the perfect pumpkin in the ENC pumpkin patch.
The orange gourds came in all shapes and sizes and were available for sale. People also used the pumpkin patch as a background for their fall family photos.
Proceeds benefit the Center’s environmental education programs.
