A Pumpkin Festival For The Whole Family – In True Pine Island NY Spirit! Pumpkinfest at the Pine Island Park
Monday, October 8, 2018, 11am to 3pm
The Pine Island Chamber organizes and hosts Pumpkinfest every Columbus Day, rain or shine, with a fun-filled afternoon of activities for adults and children of all ages! Pumpkinfest is a great way to celebrate the local harvest of pumpkins, and spend the day outdoors enjoying the warm sunshine and crisp fall air. The day features a children’s bouncy house, pumpkin painting for all, activities including face and henna painting, tattoo parlor, witch toss, touch-a-tractor and refreshments. The festivities move into a giant barn in the park should it rain.
Thanks to Paul and John J. Ruszkiewicz for donating hundreds of pumpkins for youngsters to paint and decorate. Thank you Masker Orchards for donating the most sought after apples and cider in the Warwick Valley.
Pumpkinfest 2017 was GREAT!
