To quote Linus from Peanuts, "There are three things I have learned never to discuss with people: religion, politics, and the Great Pumpkin."
Well, we hope you do more than discuss pumpkins this weekend because it's the 4th Annual Giant Pumpkin Regatta & Festival this Sunday, October 9th and we'd love to see you there!
When: Sunday, October 9th from 10-3 . . . Races begin at noon
Where: Burlington Waterfront Park, Burlington, Vermont
What: Pumpkin Regatta with lots of laughs and a fall festival including food and craft vendors, a tent full of kids activities, pet costume contest, pie eating contest, bounce castles, and more!
Rain or Shine? Both! So wear warm clothes! It can be brisk out there in October . . .
We are lucky to have the ongoing support of area businesses to make this fundraiser a success.
Last year we were able to raise $23,000 to help fund our youth leadership program, PILOT. This year, our goal is $25,000 and we just may have surpassed that with the huge response from the business community wanting to sponsor and race giant pumpkins!
