Pumpkin Palooza is returning to First Presbyterian Church of Brandon! You might be asking, what is the PUMPKIN PALOOZA? It is going to be a church-wide community event with more pumpkins than you can possibly imagine! There will be Trick or Treating, Fall Festival Games & Prizes, Youth Concession Stand (with hot dog combos & more snacks for sale to benefit the 2020 Youth Summer Trip), Bounce Houses,
Pumpkin Decorating Contest, Pumpkin Baking Contest, Pumpkin BINGO, Cake Walk, and more. Please note the time change.
This year we are asking volunteers to decorate a door, instead of a car, to hand out candy. Due to the time change and a good chance the weather will still be warm, we are moving trick or treating inside. All that means is to move your decorations inside to a doorway in the Campbell Discipleship Center and hand out the candy! Sign up to participate at the display in Mauldin Hall. Thanks! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call Lynn Pabst at 813-294-0459.
PUMPKIN BAKING CONTEST – It says Fall on the calendar, so pumpkin is definitely in the air, what better time to have a baking contest! That’s right, bake up your favorite recipe that includes pumpkin and bring it to the Pumpkin Palooza on October 27th. Judging will take place at 2:00 pm. Add your name to the entry list in Mauldin Hall and pick up an information form at the Pumpkin Path display.
PUMPKIN DECORATING CONTEST – At the Pumpkin Palooza there will be a Pumpkin Decorating Contest! Decorate a real or plastic pumpkin in one of four categories: Funny, Creatures, Characters, and Creative and bring it to the PUMPKIN PALOOZA on October 27th. Pumpkin Judging will take place at 1:30 pm.
In order to make this a great family friendly event, we need you! Visit our Pumpkin Patch display in Mauldin Hall to pick a pumpkin, to volunteer, or make a donation for this event. Remember the Pumpkin Palooza is for all ages! Invite your friends. This is a safe way for kids to trick or treat, have fun, and enjoy the fall.
