Here are pictures from last Friday July 8, with Friends of Silvermont Pumpkin Fest volunteers repairing pumpkins to get ready for 2022 Pumpkin Fest at Silvermont in Brevard.
Pumpkin Fest is a community event and fundraiser for Friends of Silvermont to improve and maintain Silvermont Park and the historic mansion. 2022 will be our 7th year!
If you are interested in volunteering this year to help us get ready, or working during the event (last 4 weekends of October), please email Maury at email@example.com and let us know how you want to help.
During the summer, we repair and paint displays and build new displays; carpentry and painting skills are needed.
Saturday, September 24 is move-in and setup day. Further setup takes place from Sept 25- opening day October 7.
During the event, we have both sitting and walking/standing roles, including several booths, parking, host at the historic house, white squirrel costume and greeter, storytelling, and more.
If you helped last year, you will be contacted in Aug – Sept to find out if you are interested and available to help this year. Thank you for your interest in helping.
