2nd Annual MH Pumpkin Festival A Fun Day In The Sun
By Bryan Harrison
Mountain House, CA The second annual Community Pumpkin Fest, held again at Central Park, October 28, 2017, was by all standards a huge hit.
What started as an annual tradition to thank their clients and celebrate Halloween with friends and neighbors in their Wicklund Village home has morphed into a very popular community event.
Partnering with the MH Community Services District, led by Angel Lamb, Drew and Colleen Jacobsen do it up big. Ten large bins full of pumpkins were brought in, with carving stations to fix them right up.
Other entertainment included the petting zoo, bounce house, games and a mechanical bull. There were food trucks, Jack Frost Italian Ice, photo booth, and DJ music by MC Productions. A special hayride toured folks around the park, as well.
The weather was amazing. Families came out by the droves. The area near the fountain at Central park was busy throughout the four hour event. Fun times in Mountain House!
“We couldn’t have been more pleased with the way it turned out,” Drew said with a smile.
“Our first very small pumpkin party was in 2012, so this was our 6th year,” he added. Certainly won’t be the last.
