On Sunday, October 30, Packer's beloved annual community fall festival Pumpkin Patch came roaring back to life after a two-year hiatus thanks to the amazing efforts of the Parent Association and an army of generous volunteers. Hundreds of kids and their families gathered on a perfect fall day to play, eat, make art, read, and celebrate all things Packerween together.
Ring Toss was one of dozens of games staffed by parent volunteers in the Garden
The campus underwent a considerable transformation ahead of the event, with classrooms morphing into haunted house labyrinths, the Garden packed with games, crafts, Packer merch, delicious treats and prizes, and Livingston Street turned into a mini amusement park, with rides, a climbing wall, and a bounce house bootcamp. Costumed ghosts and goblins seeking a quieter time headed to the story tent by Commons to hear faculty and staff read spooky tales in a cozy nook.

It was a welcome return of a wonderful Packer tradition and the perfect excuse to kick-off Halloween a day early.
