GRETNA, Neb. -- Vala's Pumpkin Patch opens every fall towards the end of September for all of their fall events. 

The Vala's family had to share unfortunate news on Friday. 

Co-founder, Jan Vala, died after having a heart attack Friday. 

There will be a visitation September 8th, and a Celebration of Life September 9th that will be held at Vala's Pumpkin Patch. 

  

In July, Jan sat down to speak with their social media intern about the pumpkin Patch, an interview shared by the pumpkin patch this weekend.
