Calling all ghouls and goblins– PumpkinPalooza is back! Join us on Thursday, October 27th starting at 4 p.m. at Alethia Tanner Park for delicious food, music from Too Much Talent Band, a seasonal scavenger hunt, our “pick-your-own” pumpkin patch, and our annual screening of Hocus Pocus (beginning at 6:45pm). We will also welcome back award-winning children’s entertainer, The Great Zucchini
This year’s event will feature the Red Bear Brewing Co. beer garden (21+ only, no exceptions)! They will be serving their All Hallows Pumpkin Lager, Gourd Riddance Pumpkin Ale and the Farmhouse Style Cider from Mt. Defiance Cidery (no cash accepted, credit/debit only). Let us know you plan to come to the beer garden by adding a “beer garden rsvp” to your registration(admittance not guaranteed due to limited capacity).
Important things to note:
By registering for one ticket for this event, you will be reserving one pumpkin. Only one pumpkin is allowed per “ticket”.
If your family needs more than one pumpkin, please be sure to register for multiple tickets. A limit of three pumpkins per family will be imposed until we release all unclaimed pumpkins at 6:30pm.
All reserved pumpkins will be held until 6:45 PM. Reserved pumpkins that are not claimed by this time will be released to other guests.
Parents, please ensure your children are supervised at all times. The Metropolitan Branch Trail runs alongside the park and is frequented by bicycles and scooters.
Dogs are more than welcome, but they must be on a leash. There is also a separate dog park at Alethia Tanner Park where your dog can play off leash!
In case of inclement weather, the event will take place on Friday, October 28th from 4pm-9pm. Certain elements of the event may not occur on the rain date.
