Jump into fall with BWG’s first Pumpkin Fest
The Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury is excited to announce a brand new family-friendly fall event – Pumpkin Fest!
Pumpkin Fest will take place on Saturday, October 14 from 11:00am-3:00pm at Henderson Memorial Park. This event is also an opportunity to get a sneak preview of the newly constructed Henderson Memorial Park, located on Line 9 just west of Sideroad 10.
All activities are free, including an inflatable corn maze, games, pumpkin carving/decorating, colouring, musical entertainment by Team T & J and Russ Clayton, a puppet show, face painting and more! Pumpkins have been provided by Tony’s Farm Market. Special guests include BWG Fire & Emergency Services, who will be providing public education as well as activities to recognize Fire Prevention Week.
Don’t leave your wallet at home, though – there will be several fundraising activities including a BBQ lunch hosted by the Bradford Lions, who raise money to support local community projects (including most recently the Henderson Memorial Park Field House). The 1st Bradford Scouts will be on hand to host Apple Day, an annual event that provides Scouting youth with an opportunity to show their appreciation to the community for their year-round support by giving away apples. Donations are gratefully accepted and all money raised goes towards improving the Scouting program. Hot drinks will also be available for donations.
Finally, non-perishable food items will be collected for the Bradford Helping Hand Food Bank.
