INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Part of the statehouse was turned into a pumpkin patch on Tuesday.

The governor and First Lady Karen were selling pumpkins for charity. The money raised will go to the Midwest Food Bank.

The Pence family helped with the sale of pumpkins and the governor even drew caricatures on pumpkins once they were purchased.

The pumpkins were provided to the state for free by Tragesser Farms in Atlanta, that’s in Hamilton County.

This is the second year for the pumpkin patch. Last year around $1,200 was raised for the Midwest Food Bank.
