Find the pick of the patch at Pumpkin Palooza, a free pumpkin giveaway hosted by St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care-Bucyrus Campus. The family-fun event is set for 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 16, at 2450 W. North Ave.
Pumpkins will be available (one per family, while supplies last) in and around St. Ann Center’s Indaba Band Shell grounds, just off N. 25th St. and west of the building. The pumpkins were purchased with a donation from event sponsor All of Us Research Program.
“Halloween is a holiday staple for so many families,” said Gloria Miller, special events director for St. Ann Center. “We’re excited to offer children a few hours to use their creativity and enjoy the fun and fantasy of the season safely, right in their community.”
The event will also feature pumpkin painting and decorating, entertainment by Clowning Blinky, goody bags for the kids, apple cider and a Halloween photo booth. Children are welcome to come in costume.
The community is also invited to tour St. Ann Center’s brand-new Intergenerational Play Garden, a wheelchair accessible playscape and STEM learning center for people of all ages and abilities. Tours will be given 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Guests are encouraged to wear face masks, which will also be available on-site.
Other event sponsors include Pete’s Fruit Market, North Avenue/Fond du Lac Marketplace Business Improvement District 32 and Saint John’s on the Lake.
