Kid’s Pumpkin Hunt

October 8 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Think “Easter Egg Hunt” only in orange !! Each year over 300 Jack-be-Littles, hidden in the Damariscotta River Association’s field, wait to be discovered by excited youngsters participating in Damariscotta Pumpkinfest’s™ Pumpkin Hunt. Children’s prizes, generously donated by Renys – A Maine Adventure- ensure that no one goes home empty handed!

Sponsors: Renys – A Maine Adventure / Clark Farm Stand

The renowned rock band “Nikki Hunt Band” will be performing from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. at the Hunt & Drop, so come early and enjoy their great sound !!

Immediately following the Pumpkin Hunt, visitors can thrill to the sight of 600# Atlantic Giant Pumpkins being dropped from a 180’ crane onto targets ranging from a local police department’s junked-cruiser to double-decker junked-cars stacked on top of one another! In the green-spirit of recycling, the splattered pumpkin pulp is gathered for eventual pig feed at a local farm, and the previously junked-cars are recycled as scrap metal.

1:00 – 4:00 p.m. Music by The Nikki Hunt Band

2:00 p.m. – Hunt begins (Age 5 and younger)
