Titletown to Host Free Pumpkin Palooza Event Saturday, Oct. 28
The free, family-friendly fall extravaganza Pumpkin Palooza presented by H.J. Martin and Son is set to take over Titletown Saturday, Oct. 28, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with fall activities and Halloween fun for all ages.
The event will include free pumpkin carving, with carving tools and pumpkins provided. Carving stations will be located at Hy-Vee Plaza on the east side of Titletown and the Grand Stairs Plaza on the west side. Pumpkin carving is available on a first-come, first-served basis and those planning to carve pumpkins must sign a waiver to participate. Waivers are available to be signed in advance at this link. Ariens Hill will close at the beginning of October and will reopen for Pumpkin Palooza (subject to change based on weather).
Pumpkin Palooza will also feature interactive giant games, live music and fun photo ops. Visitors can enjoy fall crafts and art projects, professional carved pumpkins, face painting and pumpkin décor that can be found throughout Titletown on Saturday. Guests are also encouraged to stop by the trick-or-treat station for Halloween surprises. Fall-themed food and beverages will be available for purchase, including apple cider and pumpkin donuts, pumpkin bars and caramel apples.
New this year, Titletown will be hosting a Trunk or Treat. Nonprofits and local businesses are invited to participate by decorating a car/tent space and distributing trick or treat items (provided by Titletown).
