DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) -- Pumpkin season is here!
The First United Methodist Church in Dothan is selling thousands of pumpkins and gourds.
For the church, it's been an annual tradition on the corner of West Main Street and North Park Avenue.
They're selling large pumpkins as well as other smaller ones called spookies and snowballs.
Volunteers will be selling them until 6 pm each day throughout October.
The large shipment this year came from New Mexico.
The money raised from this year's pumpkin patch will go towards mission projects and funding students for those trips.
"We had 80 people show up this past Sunday, and we worked very hard for about two and a half hours unloading about 2,800 pumpkins here. The week before we had about we had a crew of about 20-30 that came out and set up all of our tents and strung lights," said Youth Director Brad Price.
