Kid’s Pumpkin Hunt
October 13 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
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 / Mexicali Blues
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.
