Baltimore residents Hunter, 9, and Taylor Patterson, 6, ride on the float for the pumpkin patch owned by their grandfather Sam Patterson. The float won first prize in the Lions Club’s Labor Day parade in Pickerington and the Lions who judged the competition told Sam that his entry was "the best they ever had". Sam said he hoped the float would bring extra customers to his pumpkin patch located near Central High School on HIll Road. Pumpkins will be available starting Sept. 23. Anna James, 12, adds designs to her arm at the do-it-yourself face-painting booth at her Reynoldsburg neighborhood’s block party on Aug. 30. The party was for residents of Hilton and Shaw Drives.
