Giant Pumpkin Deployment

October 4 @ 3:45 pm

Free

Full Event Schedule Here

What a sight to behold! Dozens of Atlantic Giant Pumpkins loaded onto volunteered flatbed trucks –using forklifts lent by Hammond Lumber and Hammond Tractor – rumbling down Main Street!  These “Bad Boys” are real traffic stoppers, on Thursday before Columbus Day weekend, as they are delivered-in-place for Damariscotta Pumpkinfest & Regatta™ .

Sponsor: King Eider’s Pub

Watch in amazement as the forklifts gently raise each pumpkin (secured on a pallet) off the truck and lower it into place on the sidewalk in front of Damariscotta Pumpkinfest’s™ generous sponsors’ businesses. Make plans now to stroll downtown on Thursday evening before Columbus Day weekend after 3:45 p.m. to witness the thrill of Pumpkin Deployment.

Get your last minute shopping done at local retailers & enjoy Damariscotta Pumpkinfest™ specialties offered at local restaurants. Walk Main Street after dinner for one last look at the parade of pumpkins quietly waiting for their artist to arrive on Friday morning to transform them into the whimsical beauty that is their destiny.
