STARworks Glass Pumpkin Patch

Saturday, October 1, 9 a.m. 

STARworks is harvesting its second crop of unique hand blown glass pumpkins on and the public is invited to help.

STARworks Second Annual Glass Pumpkin Patch will open at 9 a.m. Wander through a dazzling array of one-of-a kind glass pumpkins nestled in the grassy front lawn of STARworks Center for Creative Enterprise in Star.

"These pumpkins are great decorative pieces for Halloween, Thanksgiving or for year-round," said Nick Fruin, STARworks Glass coordinator. "All are being created by artists at the STARworks Glass Lab." The pumpkins will come in all sizes and a wide range of beautiful fall colors.

This year we will have 1,000 pumpkins! Come early for the best pick!  Proceeds benefit the STARworks Glass High School Program. Pumpkins start as low as $35.
