A Celebration of Fall
It won’t be long before the temperatures drop and the leaves are changing color and falling to the ground. The neighborhood will be busy, neighbors raking leaves and children laughing jumping in piles of leaves as the master-planned community goes about their fall clean up. Though these are indicators that the fall season has arrived there is one tradition in The Meadows that signifies the true arrival and celebration of the official fall season and that is PumpkinFest at the Grange on Saturday, October 20th from 1 to 4 PM.
PumpkinFest is Fun for the Whole Family
What’s a PumpkinFest without a hayride? A classic for any fall festival, and at this event it’s one of the most popular activities. You can load your family into the wagon and enjoy the fall colors along Meadows Boulevard.
Kids can enjoy plenty of fun activities like arts and crafts, inflatable rides and a trackless train. Kids can bring sacks as they can even go trick or treating at the sponsor booths. Each resident will also get to venture into the pumpkin patch and pick out a free pumpkin! Additional pumpkins and pumpkins for non-residents are just $5 (cash only). Remember to bring your key fob to get your pumpkin.
One of the best parts of PumpkinFest is the costume parade! Play paparazzi as all of the kids, adults and pets are dressed in their Halloween costumes and parade around the festival. This year’s parade kicks off at 1:15. This is all topped off with great music and concessions. Lunch will be served by Boy Scout Troop 780.
I’m not sure if PumpkinFest reminds me of the festivals in the small town where I grew up or if it is the excitement of the fall season, but I love this event. It is loads of fun and a great way to meet new neighbors! Don’t miss PumpkinFest 2018 at The Grange on Saturday, October 20th from 1 – 4 PM behind The Grange.
