Pumpkin festival grows

The Armstrong Regional Co-op Great Pumpkin Weigh-In is part of Family Fun Day Oct. 10.

There are still seven weeks until the 15th annual Harvest Pumpkin Festival, so there’s still plenty of time for you to put the finishing touches on an entry to the Armstrong Regional  Co-op Great Pumpkin Weigh-In as part of Family Fun Day Oct. 10.

In addition to the adult category, there will be  a  12 and under category for those kids who grow their own pumpkins.

The Weigh-In will take place Oct. 10 between 9 and 11 a.m. Winner will be announced by 11:15 a.m. The winner will be awarded the coveted Giant Pumpkin Weigh-In trophy.

Entry forms are available at the Armstrong-Spallumcheen Chamber of Commerce office or by calling 250-546-8155. Entries received prior to Oct. 1 will be entered to win a gas card courtesy of Armstrong Regional Co-Op.

The Harvest Pumpkin Festival celebrates arts, culture and families and has grown from a one day event to a festival spanning 10 days that features fun for everyone.

Demonstrations, treats, entertainment, lawn tractor racing, pumpkin catapult, petting zoo, scarecrow building, games, and more are all part of the fun and frivolity.

Don’t miss the fun of the Armstrong Demolition Derby Oct. 12 and the Great Pumpkin Run Oct. 13.

Partners in this community event include the Government of Canada – Building Communities through Arts and Culture and Armstrong  and Armstrong Regional CO-OP.
