The 2022 Pumpkin Palooza is Saturday, October 1 from 4-10pm!
Pumpkin Palooza is a fall family festival extravaganza and chili cook-off!
The event itself is free! As an RVCC member, though, your ticket in is a pot of chili to share for the dinner. If you’re an invited guest, please don’t feel obligated to bring chili, but you are certainly welcome to pitch in and/or participate in the chili cook-off contest! If you want to enter your chili into the cook-off, there is a small entrance fee.*
Activities and events for all ages that evening will include a chili cook-off (*$10 entry fee), pie eating contest, bonfires, old-fashioned games, etc.
We will also have live music! The Benson Family is back!!
What to bring: A pan of chili and a pie! Pumpkin, apple, or berry.
What not to bring: Please do not bring any other desserts other than pie. Please do not bring other food items such as cornbread. Food space is limited.
What if I don’t like chili?: Feel free to eat before you come, or pack a sack lunch. But definitely still come!!
