Annual Pumpkin Illumination
Kadie and Dan had a brilliant idea “let’s light up the night with jack-o-lanterns! We were inspired by the reflecting pond, the natural promenade alongside it, and the location in the heart of downtown. When we talk about building community from the bottom up, this is what we mean.
A simple idea that excited the community as much as it excited us! Almost 10 years strong the event has grown to include engagement at its best. Through creative partnerships with local schools, a jazz band and the creation of life size masks by Dan Fenelon, the magic unfolded. We purchased tons of battery operated lights to highlight the masks and finally accomplished our goal of creating a family friendly version of “Burning Man” for all to enjoy.
