The Great Pumpkin Party
October 24 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The Pawtucket Parks & The Empowerment Factory is hosting The Great Pumpkin Party at Daggett Farm in Slater Memorial Park on Saturday, October 24th from 12 noon to 3 pm. This is a FREE event and preregistration is strongly suggested to receive preferential access due to the limited capacity at any given time. There are two pumpkin decorating sessions, 1pm and 2pm that require an additional and separate registration due to capacity and supply limits. A rain date has been scheduled for Sunday, October 25th.
The Great Pumpkin Party is an afternoon of treats, games and activities along with great Halloween music being provided by DJ Bo-Dee throughout the event. Children are encouraged to come in costume and participate in the Great Pumpkin Party Costume Parade which will kick off promptly at 12:30 pm.
Activities will include a pumpkin decorating area facilitated and co-sponsored by The Empowerment Factory, where they will have team members available to assist in creating custom decorated pumpkins using felt and other materials. This activity is for ages 4-14 year olds and requires pre-registration as space is limited to 30 children per session (1pm & 2pm). Organizers from the annual Slater Park Pumpkins in the Park event will be participating on this day and will be preparing a Halloween scene photo area for pictures with the children.
Games for the children will include Pumpkin Chuckin’, Pumpkin Bowling and Ring the Witch along with a Dangling Donut and Mummy Wrap contests. Prizes will be provided at these games while supplies last.
