The Great Park Pumpkin Harvest
This is going to be one of the biggest family halloween events happening in Orange County this year. Guess what?? I will be there to meet families in the OC Family tent, so please take a few minutes to come say "hi."
Free Pumpkins. That is right! Families can pick their very own pumpkin from the Great Park pumpkin patch, and then learn how to carve it from a master carver. (pumpkins are available for children under the age of 12, and there will be only one per family available)
Costume Contest. Bring your children to the event dressed in their favorite halloween costume. One child will win a family four-pack of tickets to the How to Train Your Dragon Live Spectacular at the Honda Center.
Second Harvest Food Drive. This event kicks off the Great Park food drive. Families who bring canned or non-perishable food donations will get to participate in special trick-or-treat stations.
Pumpkin Balloon Rides. The big orange balloon has transformed into a jack-o-lantern for the halloween season. Families can enjoy free rides on the balloon. The lines can get long quickly, so arrive early if planning to ride the balloon.
There will be many more activities including cooking demonstrations, monster mash puppet show, carnival games, train rides and more!
When: Saturday, October 20th from 9am to 3pm
Cost: Free Admission, $10 parking
Where: The Orange County Great Park
