Annual Pumpkin Festival To Entertain Kids & Raise Scholarship Funds
Last year approximately 800 kids attended the Pumpkin Festival in Cedar City. Women in Business is gearing up again to bring the same autumn fun to Southern Utah kids. The 12th annual Pumpkin Festival will be held on Saturday October 13, 2012 from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM at Cedar City Main Street Park downtown Cedar City UT.
For $5, children will receive a wristband which gives them access to all activities at the festival. Activities include pumpkin painting, cookie decorating, pumpkin bowling, face painting, pumpkin seed spitting, bean bag toss,pumpkin putt putt and a special craft activity provided by the Home Depot just to name a few. The COOP will provide hot dogs and hamburgers (cost not included in entrance fee)
This event is a great way for families to enjoy the autumn season. Activities are geared toward preschool and elementary school-aged children.
The Pumpkin Festival is sponsored by the Cedar City Area Chamber of Commerce’s Women in Business. Proceeds from the event go toward the Women in Business scholarship fund. Each year Women in Business awards scholarships to women pursuing degrees at an Iron County university or college. Most of the supplies and activities are sponsored by local businesses. The festival has been successful in the past due to the community’s support.
