Experience RVA is proud to present the First Annual Boulevard Pumpkin Festival Saturday October 26th 2013 Noon to 6PM on the Boulevard from W. Marshall to W. Leigh Street.
This is a FREE event for the entire family to highlight the ongoing revitalization of the historic Boulevard/Scott’s Addition area as one of Richmond’s main arteries of residential and commercial growth and rebirth. The Boulevard Pumpkin Festival is historic- this will be the first time since the old Tobacco Parade days that the Boulevard has been shut down to hold such an event. It’s shaping up to be an exciting day.
On Saturday October 26th the Boulevard from W. Marshall to W. Leigh Streets will be transformed into a land of pumpkins and straw bales where festivalgoers will enjoy the Bon Secours Movin’ Mania kids zone w/ rides and other activities for the little ones, wares from LOCAL vendors and artisans, craft beers from Loveland Distributing including Boulevard Brewing and Lost Rhino, and wines from Free Run Wine Merchants.
There will be community dining and local delicacies from area restaurants and specialty food vendors, including a pumpkin-themed cook-off to be judged by local media, movie trivia and popcorn from Bowtie Cinemas and live local music from our soundstage!
The Flying Squirrels Nutzy will be on hand to join in the fun, as well as representatives from Kings Dominion to paint faces and provide some spook! Everyone is encouraged to come out in costume, buy a pumpkin for local charity, and start Halloween a little early this year on the Boulevard!
FREE Festival parking will be available at the Flying Squirrels Diamond. A portion of festival proceeds will benefit Bon Secours Movin’ Mania, Feed RVA and Scott’s Addition.
