The Museum of East Texas, in collaboration with the Lufkin Fire Department, is proud to present Pumpkin Party. This event is scheduled for Saturday, October 27, from 1 to 3 p.m.

 Pumpkin Party will be held in the Plaza so that all participants can enjoy the beautiful fall weather while making their original creations. As always, a pumpkin patch featuring all sizes and shapes of pumpkins will be available. Once the perfect pumpkin has been selected, it is decorated with a variety of materials, including feathers, eyes, pipe cleaners, and more.

Members of the Lufkin Fire Department will be available to answer fire safety questions and distribute fire safety bookmarks, provided by Lufkin Printing Company. A fire truck and an EMS vehicle will also be on site.

Additional activities include ghost bowling, jack-o-lantern bean bag toss, face painting, and a photo board. Cupcake decorating will also be offered. Costumes are encouraged, and don’t forget to bring your camera! Parents are highly encouraged to attend this event with their children and share in the fun festivities. Children under age 12 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Pumpkin Party is developed by the Museum with assistance from the I.D. and Marguerite Fairchild Foundation, Ernest L. Kurth, Jr. Charitable Foundation, the Simon and Louise Henderson Foundation, Brookshire Brothers, William George Co, Inc., Grandough Baking Company, Lufkin Printing Company, and Museum Volunteers. This event is open to the public and free of charge. All are welcome!
