ORTING CITY PARK - FREE ENTRY

TITLE SPONSOR

The Orting Pumpkin Fest produced by the Tacoma Events Commission, is one of the great annual events for the Puget Sound.   This is one of those fall events that many return to as we celebrate autumn and all the fun that comes with it.  There are stages of entertainment, car show, "Little Pumpkin Pals Parade," lots of food, arts and crafts and a fun kids zone with games, bounce houses and more. 

The Little Pumpkin Pals Parade is open to kids in pumpkin-themed costumes to parade on the Foothills Trail from the Bell Tower to Car Show and back to the gazebo. Prizes will be awarded to all children who enter the parade.

Check in for judging and entries will be done at the info booth by the bell tower.
