Picturesque Pumpkin Display Returning to George Ranch Historical Park in Richmond

September 27 2023

Just in time for the fall season and fabulous photo ops, The George Ranch’s popular fall-themed event, The Great Pumpkin Round Up, presented by Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital, returns this October, bigger and better than ever! 

For the third year, The George Ranch will showcase a fantastic fall feature created by local designer Lucas Chavez.  Chavez has spent months working with pumpkin producers in West Texas to design an autumn display exclusively for the Ranch that includes a hay wagon, training carriage, giant sugar cane vat and, of course, pumpkins galore! The design will feature more than twenty types of gourds, pumpkins and squash along with mums and fall plants.  

The display will move locations this year to the circle drive in front of the 120-year-old George Ranch House.  Situated along the white picket fence and up the front walk to the main door, it will offer multiple backgrounds for the perfect selfie or family photo. 

The perfect place for families and visitors of all ages to spend a fall-themed Saturday of fun taking photos, picnicking and touring the historic sites at The George Ranch, Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital is presenting The Great Pumpkin Round Up.

“The Great Pumpkin Round Up is such a treat for our visitors,” said George Ranch Site Director Adrienne Barker.  “We can’t wait to see the new design Lucas Chavez creates for us this year.  He has in mind a very creative Methodist vignette everyone will need to see!”

The Great Pumpkin Round Up is included with the purchase of a regular admission ticket to The George Ranch where visitors explore what life was like in Texas decades ago.  Ticket proceeds also support the primary mission of student education through weekday field trip visits.  The Great Pumpkin Round Up debuts Saturday, October 14th and runs through November 25th, 2023.
