Downtown Squamish Business Improvement Association (DSBIA) is inviting community to a Pumpkin Patch in the Park on Saturday, October 22, from 10 am to 2 pm.
The pumpkin patch will be in the Stan Clarke Park in Downtown Squamish. From face painting to live music, halloween crafts to a bake sale, spooky stories to a trick or treat, there is something for everyone in the family to enjoy. There will also be a great photo opportunity.
There is no admission fee to this event but people are asked to bring cash for the pumpkins and the bake sale. The minimum donation is $5 per pumpkin with all proceeds going to @seatoskyallies, an organization that promotes, educates, supports and builds community among parents, caregivers and allies of 2SLGBTQ+ people.
‘I am so thrilled we can finally bring back this community event, and this year we will be adding a few new fun activities, which includes Spooky story time with the Little Bookshop, Halloween art with local Artist Ciarra Saylor and a Downtown Squamish Trick or Treat’ says Kerry Neil, Executive Director of The Downtown Squamish BIA.
Children will pick up a free treat bag and a stamp card form the Pumpkin Patch and will visit a minimum of 10 participating businesses in the downtown neighbourhood before returning to the park to enter a competition to win the grand prize.
