Among the many forms of entertainment, word is there will be a straw bale maze and pumpkin patch. Dogstar Tattoo is a hosting face painting tent. The Goldenbelt Artists will be doing a pumpkin decorating station. $5 bucks and you can take one home. No word on whether or not the Great Pumpkin will be making an appearance.
It is a super kid-friendly environment. The Durham Fire Department will be there with a 65 foot ladder truck. The Cotton Room is hosting a yummy cookie decorating station. LabourLove Gallery has a Fall craft projects at the table for children. There is even a pet costume contest sponsored Triangle Pet Adoption, good folks who save animals from high kill shelters.
For a nominal fee, our friends at Liberty Arts and one of their glassblowers, George-ann Greth, will help kids blow small orange glass pumpkins. Kids will also have the opportunity to play on the Shodor Foundation’s “Interactivate” site for exploration in science and mathematics.
100% of the $5 suggested donation for the event will be going to the John Avery Boys and Girls Club to help them rebuild after their recent fire.
