Enjoy performances from local bands and musicians with entertainment being held in the Gazebo. Clubs from not only Carmel High School, but also Park Tudor and Brebeuf will line the festival space with games, food, and activities for all to enjoy. Hay rides will be available during the entire event and a costume parade will be held at both 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.
Come see a presentation from Lee, the professional pumpkin carver, as he turns ordinary pumpkins into masterpieces. Food trucks will also be present at the event. Not only is Pumpkin Fest a great opportunity to welcome the fall season, it provides the opportunity to donate to a worthy cause as a majority of the funds collected at the event will be donated to Art With a Heart, a charity that uses art to inspire at-risk children.
"PumpkinFest is great event that puts people in a fall mindset and is an awesome event for all of the community to enjoy" stated Maddy Hilger, Vice President of Current activities for the Carmel Mayor’s Youth Council.
Decorate a pumpkin, enjoy local musicians, drink some apple cider, but most importantly have a fun time with the family while supporting a charity.
