Maine Pumpkin Festival
"We're bringing it home to MAINE! As many of you may recall we first introduced our Pumpkin Festival in Deering Oaks Park in 2003. We then took the festival on the road for a few years and in 2006, Camp Sunshine smashed the Guinness World Record for the most lit jack-o-lanterns at one place, at one time in Boston, MA. This year, we are excited to be back in Maine and are gearing up again to beat the World Record at Cumberland Fairgrounds!
This year’s event promises to be incredibility exciting with live music, face painting, children’s activities, great food, and of course — pumpkin carving! Make this annual event a tradition for your family and friends. And don’t forget, all proceeds from the event will benefit Camp Sunshine, a national retreat for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.
Join us for a day of pumpkins, entertainment, and family fun at the Cumberland Fairgrounds!
