The Fruitville Grove Pumpkin Festival is about so much more than pumpkins. It’s about animals, music, and family fun. It’s about having a good time with the people you love and enjoying the crisp fall air under the Florida sun. It’s also about to take place. The 29th Annual Pumpkin Festival is going to take place every weekend in October, so get ready for some family fun with your crew.
Dress the Kids Up
The pumpkin festival has a costume contest every Saturday at 1 p.m. The judges will pick a winner, so make sure your child has a fun and unique costume. You could go with one of the popular costumes this year such as the crew from “Stranger Things” or Wonder Woman, or you could step outside of the box and go with something unique and different. Try to hit one out of the park so your child will take home the prize.
Wear Your Bug Spray
As you know when you live in Florida, it never really gets cold enough to kill off the bugs. This festival takes place outdoors, so you might come in contact mosquitos and other pests. They want to be at the festival too, but you can keep them away from you by spraying yourself with bug spray before the event. You might not smell your best, but you will feel much better if you don’t have to worry about getting attacked.
Get Ready for Some Activities
As you know by now, this festival is about more than pumpkins. You can bungee jump, play laser tag, climb a rock wall, and more. With so much action, it’s a good idea to dress appropriately. Don’t wear your Sunday best to come out to the festival or you’ll be stuck sitting on the sidelines. Wear something comfortable so you can run around like a crazy person. That’s the way to have fun at this festival. Keep this in mind when choosing a costume for your child as well. You want your kid to be able to take part in the fun, so the costume shouldn’t be restrictive.
The fun doesn’t have to end when the festival is over. If you get a new or pre-owned vehicle from Venice Toyota in Venice, Florida, you’ll be ready to embark on your next adventure as soon as the festival ends. Let us help you pick out a new ride, and then get ready for the fun to continue for years and years to come. Your next adventure will always be right around the corner.
