Fall is here. Leaves are changing from green to brown, pumpkins perch on front porches, and grocery stores are selling Halloween candy in full throttle.

Centro San Antonio and the City had planned to host a Fall Festival at Travis Park, but because of a nearly 100% chance of rain on Saturday, they will instead host a series of pop-up pumpkin patches throughout downtown San Antonio from Oct. 26-30.

H-E-B is sponsoring the distribution of 1,000 pumpkins to children during the “Flash Patch” free of charge. The pop-up pumpkin patches will include photo opportunities, scarecrows, and the Magik Theatre will host a one-night performance of Rumpelstiltskin.

The when and wheres for “Flash Patch” have not yet been set, so stay tuned for more information. For more information, visit Centro San Antonio’s website, Facebook page, and Twitter account.
