Great Pumpkin Festival
The Whitefish Bay Civic Foundation's Great Pumpkin Festival will be held Oct. 24-28 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. For the first time, the festival will also have a special trick or treat event on Halloween, which falls on Wed., Oct. 31.
All that's needed to participate is a creative mind and community spirit. Simply pick out your pumpkin and bring it into the carving tent, where tools, candles and table space are provided.
Once you've decorated your jack-o-lantern, you can place it on the bleachers in the park, where will be lit on display every night.
It's not just pumpkins, though. Each night will feature food from Pandl’s Whitefish Bay Inn, as well as the following musical entertainment:
Wed., Oct. 24: Reilly
Thurs., Oct. 25: Blue Sky Hour
Fri., Oct. 26: Dante's Bop
Sat., Oct. 27: The Gleasons
More About Old School House Park
Also known to some as Fountain Park, Old School House Park is located on a triangle of land across from the library, where the first school in Whitefish Bay once stood. Today is is a botanical refuge featuring a fountain, plantings and benches. In the fall it is used to display hundreds of carved pumpkins.
