Great first weekend of pumpkin fest 2019!

IMG_20191011_191016.jpgThank you to all the great folks who supported and enjoyed pumpkin fest the first weekend. We had a record breaking attendance the first night! Thank you to our musicians and their fans for doing a great job, Hammond George and Unpaid Bill and the Bad Czechs.

We were happy that the Asheville citizen times newspaper named it as top fall festival in their weekend special. People are driving from two hours away and telling us it’s worth it. One local family comes every night. We have a new kids activity this year, dress up like a pirate photo op and people are loving it.

Great opening night tonight!

Lots of folks enjoyed the lighted pumpkin trail, music, food, visiting the historic mansion, and of course the wonderful kids activities.   Face painting and games are popular as always, and of course the white squirrel scavenger hunt.   New this year are temporary tattoos and dress up like a pirate!   Folks also enjoyed Bills Boilerhouse coffee and snacks, Tin Roof Pizza and The BBQ Shed.   Here are some pictures of the displays!

Pumpkin Fest Set Up Starts Today!

Monday, September 30 is the start of set up for Pumpkin Fest 2019. Here are some pictures of the Pumpkinteers working hard today.

Thank you so much to the Schenck Job Corp and 14 other volunteers who showed up to work hard at Silvermont Park today setting up the displays.  If you are interested in helping, there are lots of opportunities for all types of skill levels and abilities.

If you are in the Silvermont Park over the next month, please don’t let little kids kick or hit the pumpkins, as they are fragile.
