It was action packed entertainment for everyone on Saturday when over 2,000 Bucs Squad members and their families visited One Buccaneer Place to help welcome fall with the First Annual Bucs Squad Pumpkin Patch celebration.
Bucs Squad members enjoyed picking and decorating a pumpkin from the massive pumpkin patch, a thrilling pirate ship ride around One Buc Place, and brushing up on football skills with the Quarterback Challenge and Play 60 Drills. Children also got to strut their stuff at the costume contest and parade, showing off some of the cutest, scariest, and most creative costumes around. The Buccaneers Cheerleaders were on hand to visit with families, pose for pictures, and lead children in learning new dance moves!
Bucs Legends Clifton Smith and Jeremy Trueblood also hosted a Legends Talk where they shared stories about their time as players with the Bucs, and talked to kids about the importance of accomplishing goals.
With so many fun activities, it was hard for some Bucs Squad members to pick a favorite, while others knew exactly what they enjoyed most! Bucs Squad member Luke Washington said, “The Quarterback challenge and drills were my favorite part of the day”. While Bucs Squad member Avery Correira said her favorite activity was posing for a pic in front of the Jameis Winston locker room replica in the Bucs Street Team RV!
The Bucs Squad hosted their First Annual Pumpkin Patch Celebration full of exciting fall activities.
"I think it's amazing because as a parent you're always trying to find things to do with your kids", said Bucs Squad Parent Angelica Urbie. "The fact that they're putting this type of event together is wonderful for moms and families."
All profits from the Pumpkin Patch event will benefit Buccaneers Academies, supporting over 14,000 underserved children throughout the Bay Area. Many family memories were made as a new exciting and charitable fall tradition was started with the First Annual Bucs Squad Pumpkin Patch Celebration.[
