Please join us this year for our 4th Annual Pumpkinfest, which we are excited to announce will be bigger than ever before. Once again the push is going to be to carve as many pumpkins as possible for our evening Pumpkin Stroll, but this year we have added entertainment for the whole family all afternoon.

Festivities start at 1:00 pm with the beginning of our Carving Party. You are welcome to make as many jack o lanterns as you want for the afternoon. We hope you will take your photo with it and post it to Snapchat, Instagram, and Facebook, to show everyone the great work you’ve done.

Also at 1,  Jungle Jim will bring his Balloon Magic Show to the greenhouse, it is a great treat for children ages 3 – 10, with each show geared towards the age of the group of children present. This performance combines balloon art, storytelling, magic, and a whole lot of fun! http://www.junglejimboston.com/

At 1:45 Big Joe the Storyteller will take over for a half hour session with one from a collection of over 500 tales, Big Joe has stories that will delight and amaze his audience. http://www.bigjoe.com/

The Pumpernickel Puppets will arrive for the 2:30 session and will tell the story of Peter Rabbit. Pumpernickel Puppet shows are presented with a cast of colorful puppet characters, audience participation, live voices and sound effects and fast paced scripts that not only entertain, but stimulate children’s imagination and creativity. The performance lasts approximately forty minutes and is appropriate for children ages three and up.  http://www.pumpernickelpuppets.com/

To close out the afternoon, Thomas from Jammin with You will present A Smashing Mash at Volante Farms Pumpkin Fest. http://www.jamminwithyou.com/

During the entire afternoon Needham Bank will be sponsoring Face Painting and a Photo Booth. And Stacy’s Juice Bar will be down to sample some of the pumpkin inspired treats they have been making this fall with Volante Farms’ Sugar Pumpkins.

We will have Volante Farms Donut Holes, Apples, and Cider available all afternoon as well. So please consider stopping by and carving a pumpkin for our display while you enjoy some of the fantastic entertainment we have lined up this year.

We ask only for a $10 donation to include all the festivities and pumpkins you can handle. Children under 2 are free. 100% of your donated funds will go directly to Boston Children’s Hospital.

Please contact us with any questions and we look forward to seeing you at this year’s Pumpkinfest!

As an added bonus we hope to be sampling from our Thanksgiving Menu during the Pumpkinfest so parents can take a minute to sample and place their orders while their kids are occupied!
