SILVERTHORNE ” Pumpkin Fest returns to the Silverthorne Pavilion Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. More than 500 pumpkins will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Children are invited to come in costume and get an early start on the Halloween festivities.

Families are invited to chose a pumpkin from the Pavilion lawn and then warm up with a cup of hot cocoa while their children compete in costume and pumpkin carving contests. New to the event this year is “Omni’s Great Pumpkin Scramble,” which kicks off the event at 10 a.m. The scramble will allow children in different age groups to run out and search for pumpkins with Omni Real Estate stickers hidden on the bottom (different areas will be segmented off for different age groups). The Town requests that guests limit their pumpkin conquests to one per child, children need to be present to collect the pumpkins.
