The event will utilize Park Square and surrounding areas along Court, Elm, Broad and East Main Streets. Some of the highlights of the day will include pumpkin carving, games, music, buskers and activities for children and families.
Downtown area businesses will have special sales, giveaways, and special activities throughout afternoon. The event will end with a Pumpkin lighting on the Green.
“This event started as a small event but as more people got involved it has turned into something much larger. While this is the first PumpkinFest, I believe that it will continue and will be something that people look forward to each year. The business community, non profits, and residents have truly come together to help plan this event” said Bob Plasse, board member of Westfield on Weekends.
The major sponsors for this event include Westfield Gas and Electric/ Whip City Fiber, Easthampton Savings Bank, Westfield Bank, Berkshire Bank, WSKB, Rosewood Home and Gifts, Witalisz and Associates, John S Lane and Sons, Georges Jewelers and the Short Stop Bar and Grill.
