  1. Thank you everyone ,, It was a perfect storm and a very giant shout out to all the volunteers and to the fact we got all the Pumpkins in the dumpster LAST night…. I am so so so so so Happy we are not in the rain picking up pumpkins.

    The number of people to thank is much greater than my poor (very tired Brain) can muster at the moment. Number one is KATHY….and of course Gina

    We are so blessed to have such a great and crazy community that is willing to dive into the breach with us on our flights of fantasy.

    Last night saw over 2500 people from all over the area and proved to the new City Management and to many communities that you can take a risk, play with fire and just have good old fashion silly fun free of charge and it’s a VERY GOOD thing.

    This is the core of life with a smile on it !

    Thank you everyone…….


    If you saw something you liked last night check out for info on our sponsors , artists, vendors and other… Let them know you appreciated their hard work directly, it takes a lot to make all the art and events !
