JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, people are trying to keep up with fall traditions, but they’re coming with some changes for sanitation and social distancing. One of the largest pumpkin patches in Jacksonville is set to open Saturday at Mandarin United Methodist Church. “The patch this year will have some great pumpkins,” said Conley Hobbie, or the Great Pumpkin, as he’s affectionately called. “Many pumpkin patches in the area have decided not to have a pumpkin patch, so Mandarin United Methodist Church is probably going to be one of the biggest pumpkin patches in Jacksonville this year,” Hobbie said.
