Free Pumpkins at the Great Park Pumpkin Harvest + Food Drive
Thursday October 13, 2011see more by jen
Kids and families are invited to celebrate the fall season at the fourth annual Great Park Pumpkin Harvest and food drive, Saturday, October 22, 2011 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
This fall event is especially important in the fight against hunger. Visitors are encouraged to bring canned and non-perishable food items to the Great Park Pumpkin Harvest and food drive to help Second Harvest Food Bank and Community Action Partnership prepare for their busy Thanksgiving season helping families in need.
Did you know that Second Harvest Food Bank feeds more than 240,000 hungry people in Orange County every month? Thanksgiving is an especially busy time for the organization and they depend on the thousands of local individual donors who bring canned food items to the Great Park Pumpkin Harvest.
And get this! Children 12 and under will receive a free pumpkin (while supplies last!)
Other activities include a competition where you can vote for your favorite scarecrow created by organizations in support of the Second Harvest Food Bank and Great Park agricultural programs at the Scarecrows in the Park contest.
There will also be pumpkin decorating, carnival games, a petting zoo, train rides, mini hay-maze, treat stations and more for your family to enjoy!
Admission is free. Parking is $10.
The Orange County Great Park is located at Sand Canyon and Marine Way, and can easily be reached by the 5 or 405 freeways. For more information, click HERE.
