Pumpkinfest at the Art Gallery
The Nanaimo Art Gallery, downtown location, 150 Commercial Street, is presenting Pumpkinfest for children on Saturday, October 25, 2008, from 10 am to 5 pm. Pumpkinfest will include snacks and children's entertainment, including face painting and spooky story telling. The gallery will be decorated in a fall/halloween theme and children are encouraged to come in costume. The highlight will be a pumpkin carving/decorating contest during which contest participants will carve and/or decorate pumpkins using tools and decorating materials provided on-site or brought from home. At the end of the day the creations will be judged, and first, second, and third place prizes will be awarded in each category. Entry is by donation or by pumpkin, and after the pumpkins have been carved they can be taken home. Please call 250-740-6350 to register to let the gallery staff know if you are bringing your own pumpkin to carve or will give a donation and receive a pumpkin on site.
