Pumpkin derby, pumpkin show-n-shine, pumpkin pageant, pumpkin pie-eating contest… it’s a PumpkinPalooza!
This Sunday, October 21, 2012, from 12:00 PM to 7:00 PM PDT, at Victorian Square in Sparks, Nevada, the Northern Nevada Center for Independent Living, a local nonprofit organization that works to improve the quality of life for people with disabilities by promoting independent living is hosting its first annual PumpkinPalooza. All proceeds will benefit the nonprofit and that makes this nonprofit professional very happy to know that a nonprofit organization is benefiting from the festivities. “Event organizers also will benefit from support from the city of Sparks and several businesses on Victorian Avenue, including Great Basin Brewery, Cantina Los Tres Hombres and John Ascuaga’s Nugget” writes Michael Martinez of the Reno Gazette Journal.
There will also be live musical entertainment at this event. “We’ve got mostly rock ‘n’ roll and a jazz quartet in the middle of the day, but it starts with rock ‘n’ roll, dance music, then mellower music and finishes with rock ‘n’ roll,” said Kat Wilson, who organized the PumpkinPalooza’s entertainment and will perform with her band, Pocket City (Source: Reno Gazette Journal). Cicus Circus will also provide various carnival games during the event.
With so many things to witness and do as a part of the event festivities, this sounds like a great experience in the making. As a fan of all things Fall and Halloween, this sounds like the perfect event for my family to attend. I am really excited that we have another event in the community where we will showcase why living in Northern Nevada is the best place on Earth. Why would we want to live anywhere else?
Will you be attending this event? What are you most excited about seeing/experiencing?
