  • Annual Community Pumpkin Patch Opens October 1

    Florida weather is typically not a good indicator, but you know it is fall when the pumpkins arrive in Sorrento! Our annual pumpkin patch is a community fundraising event. The proceeds from your pumpkin patch purchase remain in the east lake community. Local non profits and youth groups take turns working our patch at the East Lake Library and receive a percentage of the funds at the end of the pumpkin sale.

    We have pumpkins of all sizes, perfect for pumpkin carving a jack-o’-lantern with your favorite pumpkin stencil and decorating your porch for fall. Don’t forget to roast the pumpkin seeds and cook up something delicious with the pumpkin innards, maybe a pumpkin pie. Our patch is also a great location for fall photos.  

    Please support your community patch and purchase your pumpkins from the East Lake Chamber of Commerce Community Pumpkin Patch this season! Pumpkin delivery is scheduled for October 1st and the sale will run through October 31st or until we run out of pumpkins! 

    Pumpkin Patch hours are Monday-Friday 12-8, Saturdays 10-8 and Sunday 10-6.The community patch is located at 31340 CR 437 South. For further information please call the chamber at 352-383-8801
