No doubt about it we are experiencing what is referred to as Indian Summer. Get out your shorts and sunglasses and enjoy it while you can, tomorrow the temperatures will drop and there is even a forecast for a bit of rain.
No worries, if you don't like the chilly and wet conditions Saturday, head over to the high school for H2O's 12th annual Pumpkin Palooza!
What exactly is a Pumpkin Palooza? According to the City of Lakewood Official Blog:
Pumpkin Palooza serves as the culmination of a citywide pumpkin-decorating challenge as well as a celebration of “Make A Difference Day” in Lakewood and will involve other Lakewood-based civic groups. “The Great Pumpkin Patch” will be filled with decorated pumpkins donated by various artists and organizations. Festival goers will have the opportunity to participate in a pumpkin raffle to win their favorite pumpkin. The “Harvest Moon Café” will feature pizza, baked goods and beverages. In Autumn Adventureland, there will be crafts, carnival games and a costume parade at 2:00 p.m. There will also be scary and not-so-scary storytelling in “Sleepy Hollow.”
Pumpkin Palooza is open to the public. Festival goers are asked to bring a non-perishable food item to be donated to Lakewood Community Services Center and Lakewood Charitable Assistance Corporation. Tickets may be purchased for food, beverages, the pumpkin raffle and the various activities. Tickets will be priced at 25¢ each. Admission to Pumpkin Palooza is free.
