The Armijo Aquatics Center is getting into the Halloween spirit by converting their pool into a watery pumpkin patch.

The City of El Paso Parks and Recreation Department will host a unique and free pumpkin patch for children ages 3-12 to select one pumpkin from up to 150 floating pumpkins (while they last) in the zero-depth pool at the Armijo Aquatics Center.

This will be the first watery pumpkin patch in El Paso, which will also allow each child to decorate their chosen pumpkin which will be open to the first 150 kids.

Not only will kids be able to select a free pumpkin but free swimming will be available from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. with proper swim attire.

A different time frame will allow children of specific ages to jump into the pool and select their pumpkins, they are as follows:

10:30 a.m. to 10:40 a.m. – Ages 3-5
10:45 a.m. to 10:55 a.m. – Ages 6-8
11 a.m. to 11:10 a.m. – Ages 9-12
