On Saturday, October 17, 2015, the Great Pumpkin and her minions will arrive at Pulaski Park for the first ever Palmer Pumpkin Palooza.
This Fall Festival will include family fun activities throughout day and once night falls, a giant display of Jack O’ Lanterns. There will be hayrides, music, dancers, games, food trucks, and of course pumpkins. The Falcon’s mascot, Screech, will be making an appearance along with Sparky the Fire Dog. We will have costumes and pumpkin carving contests with cash prizes, sponsored by Fire Service Group.
Guests are asked to bring a carved pumpkin to include as part of the display. There is no admission fee. We only ask for a $1 donation for the candle to be placed in the pumpkin.
Enjoy local entertainment including musical acts, Good Acoustics, Tony Valley and Billy Goodspeed. They will be a variety of vendors selling everything from Halloween themed goods to specialty bags and cooking supplies.
This event is a joint venture between Palmer Soccer Association and Gotta Dance of Palmer, MA.
