Profits from the patch go to the church's youth ministry to help fund camps for the students.
The 17th annual pumpkin patch at Grace Lutheran Church created a fall feel along Ocean Shore Boulevard on Saturday, Oct. 21.
Children and families picked out their favorite pumpkins and enjoyed the bounce house during the festival.
Church member Jessy Crabb said 1,462 regular-size pumpkins, plus crates of smaller ones, were delivered to the property for the patch. She said the patch profits will help fund camps for the church's youth group so that students can attend the camps for free.
