Our school had it’s annual Pumpkin Fest last night. It’s a fund raiser and a community event. Last night was the 21st one! That’s such a long time!
It always involves pumpkins of course. There were many people who went home with one. I haven’t yet decided if I will have a jack-o-lantern this year, so I didn’t get one. The pumpkin-getting area is right in front. It was under a coconut tree. I thought it was an interesting juxtaposition of images.
There were several entertainers who sang. It was fun to hear the different styles. I don’t remember any names except for the parent of one of my seventh graders. One of the guys sang a lot of John Denver songs.
There was also a silent auction. I got a little carried away.
The two baskets were Christmas-themed. I was just bidding on the one to get some cookie cutters. I was bidding on the other because it had a Target gift card in it. Fortunately, my co-workers Chloe and Sarah wanted a lot of the stuff in the baskets and took most of it with them.
