The 2018 Pumpkin Fest at the Middletown Home Was Our Biggest & Best Year Yet!
19 Sep 2018
We wish to extend our most heartfelt thanks to all the vendors, volunteers, residents and attendees who helped to make the 2018 Middletown Home Pumpkin Fest a resounding success! It takes a village to put on such a detailed and well-coordinated event and we couldn’t have done it without each and every one of you.
Moreover, we’re pleased to share that the 2018 Pumpkin Fest was our biggest and best year yet, with record setting numbers of attendees and funds raised to support the Middletown Home’s mission. As our biggest fundraiser of the year, it is immensely important that this event continues to grow, and we plan to do exactly that!
Be sure to mark your calendars NOW for 2019 Pumpkin Fest which will take place on Sunday, September 15, 2019. It’s never too early to begin planning, especially if you’re a vendor who would like to reserve your spot early.
In total, we have 100+ vendors and artisans and 14,000+ attendees. The hot air balloon ride was our newest addition and a favorite among attendees who could finally mark the experience off their bucket lists. Additionally, our FOUR live bands put everyone in the festive spirit. Thank you to No Last Call, Pentagon Band, Erin Cruise and Cruise Control Band and The Fabulous Hubcaps! Last, but certainly not least, we thank our many generous sponsors! Your support is never overlooked. Please take a look at our 2018 program book to learn about all of our community sponsors.
As our way to recap and share the success of our 2018 Pumpkin Fest, we’d like to share just a sampling of the many, many beautiful photos snapped by staff and attendees at the event. If you have more to share, be sure to visit our Facebook page where you can post them for all to see. Again, we cannot overemphasize how grateful we are to be able to host this great community event – and we know 2019 will continue to take the Pumpkin Fest to a whole new level!
