Pumpkin muffins and lattes are good and all, but they are no PumpkinPalooza. The yearly event held in Lyons is back promises to be better than ever with new and different events. Show off your artistic side in Village Square at the annual Pumpkin Carving on Thursday, October 16, at 6 p.m. This will be followed on Friday, October 17, with an antique show and pre-sale, where you can peruse old-time goodies and sip on some wine. The sale rolls over to the following day as well. On that day, PumpkinPalooza will be at its most activity, with a farmers market, 5K race, a costume parade and, of course, a pumpkin race.
PumpkinPalooza will be held Thursday, October 16, through Saturday, October 18, in Lyons. Check out the event's Facebook page to see the full schedule.
