In a few weeks, the St. Pete Pier is bringing back a great photo opportunity with its fall pumpkin patch.

The lawn beneath the Bending Arc, the billowing net sculpture created by artist Janet Echelman, will be filled with thousands of pumpkins, hay bales, refreshments and a free photo booth set up Oct. 9-17.

You can take a fall family picture and also buy a pumpkin to take home.
