LightHouse for the Blind Youth Program presents: Clancy’s Pumpkin Patch

Summer has come and gone. Kids are back in school. Leaves are awash in autumnal colors. And, Halloween is just around the corner. To usher in this special time of year, LightHouse invites all blind and low vision youth to join us on our quest for the perfect pumpkin.
The pumpkin hunt begins at 1:00pm Saturday, October 12th. We will meet at the LightHouse at 214 Van Ness Avenue, and take Muni over to Clancy’s Pumpkin Patch where each participant will search for their perfect pumpkin. Once found, we will head back to LightHouse to have a pumpkin carving party with spooky music and treats.
If you would like more information, or to RSVP for this event, please contact Jamey Gump, Youth Services Coordinator, at (415) 694-7372, or by email at
