Pumpkin Fest coming to Middletown Home

Posted

The Middletown Home’s 2016 Pumpkin Fest, the retirement community’s largest fundraiser, will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 18.


The Middletown Home’s Pumpkin Fest, which will be held at its campus at 999 West Harrisburg Pike, is open to the public and free to attend with more than 50 local and regional artisans, Kauffman’s Chicken BBQ, homemade chicken corn soup and lots of baked goods including pumpkin whoopie pies.


There will be a variety of entertainment and activities including face painting, pumpkin bowling, barrel train rides, hayrides, build-your-own scarecrow, pumpkin painting, caricatures, a huge raffle and a silent auction.


Two live bands will perform. Laredo, one of Central Pennsylvania’s top country bands, will play in the home’s historic band shell. In the afternoon, The Fabulous Hubcaps, recognized as one of the nation’s most sought-after oldies show bands, will deliver a performance for all age groups. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs.


Located off West Harrisburg Pike, the Middletown Home was built in 1924 by the Independent Order of the Odd Fellows. The historic campus had its first major addition in 1974 and is once again undergoing a major transformation to add additional resources and programs.


 Proceeds from this year’s Pumpkin Fest will be used to purchase a new handicapped-accessible bus to transport residents at their request to appointments, shopping, and other programs and events in the community.
