It’s starting to smell ‘pumpkiny’ out there! Not to mention our precious sun is going down earlier and earlier…fall is just days away! Luckily, Linking Learning to Life is staying busy with the start of our programs and planning for the 3rd Annual NEFCU Giant Pumpkin Regatta & Festival! Oh, it’s back and bigger than before, so save the date:
When: Sunday, October 10th from 10-3…races begin at noon
Where: Burlington Waterfront Park
What: Pumpkin Regatta with lots of laughs and a fall festival including food and craft vendors, a tent full of kids activities, old school potato sack races, pet costume contest, pie eating contests, giant pumpkin photo ops, 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 businesses like Sign-A-Rama to make this fundraiser a success. Last year we were able to raise $17,000 to help fund our youth leadership program, PILOT. This year, our goal is $20,000 and we just may have surpassed that with the huge response from the business community wanting to sponsor and race giant pumpkins!
Along with sponsors, we will have your favorite local celebrities racing…WPTZ’s Tom Messner. . .SevenDays’ Lauren Ober . . .UVM Coach Mike Lonergan . . .Fox 44’s Kerrin Jeromin . . .just to name a few! So get to the Burlington Waterfront on the 10th to support Linking Learning to Life and dress warm!
