Also, Moreland Educational Foundation's Pumpkin Patch and Haunted Trail posted this on their Facebook page: "Tonight from 4-9pm we will be having a great time at the Patch! Country Lane Carnival and food trucks (wood fired pizza and beer steamed hot dogs). Watch the Lorax movie at 6:30. Trick or treating and raffle too." They are located at 4835 Doyle Road, San Jose, CA. and the $ made benefits our local schools :)
