SIERRAVILLE, Calf. — The Sierraville Pumpkin Patch is going big this year. The exciting 25-foot rock-climbing wall will be back, and there will be pumpkins, pumpkin carving and games. But new this year are a juried art exhibit and a craft beer and cider garden (the "Beer Patch"), all at the Sierraville Elementary School on Saturday, Oct. 18.

"We'll have the Pumpkin Patch bake sale, as always, with apple, pear and peach pies, bundt cakes, cookies, cupcakes, and zucchini breads," says Tami McCollum, the event's chief organizer. "Come early to get your choice, then stick around for a barbecue lunch by the Calpine Fire Department."

The Beer Patch will serve craft beers and ciders, hosted by the friendly crew of the Sierraville Recreation Association. There will also be bobbing for apples, face painting, and games.

Also brand new this year is the Home Grown Talent Art Show, a juried exhibit of work by local artists. Deadline for art entries is Oct. 14.

"It's an opportunity for all Sierra County artists to show their work, and for everyone to celebrate and discover the incredible talent we have right here," says B.J. Jordan, Sierra County Arts Council executive director.

Entry forms are available at http://www.sierracountyartscouncil.org or by calling 530-289-3673.
