After reading some of the comments on the pumpkin patch post, it’s no wonder that this caught my eye on the Bend Parks & Rec Facebook page…
It’s true, no pumpkin festival from us this year. Trust for Public Land will be having a pumpkin hunt at Miller’s Landing on Oct. 23 from 10-12 with cider, snacks and raffle prizes.
Found a line item about the pumpkin hunt here (scroll all the way to the bottom of the page). My guess is that this will be something like an Easter Egg hunt – hopefully more info is forthcoming.
Although it doesn’t say so on the site I would imagine this is a fundraising event so there might be a small cost to hunt for pumpkins, buy raffle tickets, etc. Miller’s Landing is certainly a worthy cause, and they only have until the end of this year to raise the rest of their $1.81 million goal (the site doesn’t say how much they’ve raised so far).
