Cool Patch Pumpkins last week was granted a use permit to operate its seasonal operation at 6150 Dixon Avenue West in Dixon – and will soon be open for business.
Allan Calder, the Solano County planning manager, granted the permit Thursday while sitting as the zoning administrator.
What started out as roadside pumpkin stand in 2001 has turned into a popular destination that includes a corn maze and other attractions.
“We pride ourselves on faith, family and fun, all of which you will find here at Cool Patch,” owner Matt Cooley states on his webpage. “We are excited to continue to provide a place where friends and family can come to celebrate fall and kick off the holiday season. We also love partnering with schools and churches to provide educational field trips for kids of all ages.”
Information on group tours can be found at www.coolpatchpumpkins.com. As of Sept. 25, the hours of operation are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
