Pumpkin Palooza 2011!

October 24, 2011

On Saturday, October 29, 2011 there will be plenty to do in Downtown Bristol for the entire family. Beginning early Saturday morning at the State Street Farmers Market, the Bristol Tennessee Parks & Recreation Department will partner with Believe in Bristol to host the thirteenth annual Pumpkin Palooza event! There will be fun and games galore. Wear your favorite costume to the market and participate in the costume parade, then take a few minutes to decorate a pumpkin of your choice to take home. There will be treat bags for kids of all ages. Pumpkin Palooza will take place at the Downtown Center located at 810 State Street from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Once you do the parade walk and decorate your pumpkin, continue down State Street to trick–or-treat with merchants. Enjoy a few additional spots on State Street thanks to Believe in Bristol Arts & Entertainment District like — Pumpkin Chunkin at Kil’n Time Pottery, face painting at One of a Kind Gallery, or just take a break at one of the storytelling stations along the street and listen to a ghost story by the Beaver Creek Storytellers and the Bristol Public Library. Please note that Twin City Photo Club will be available during Pumpkin Palooza to take a “spooky” photo of your child for purchase.
