2013 WV Pumpkin Festival School Days
Thursday October 3RD or Friday October 4th
The West Virginia Pumpkin Festival would like to invite you and your students to spend a fun and educational day with us on Thursday or Friday. We will have many of the activities we have had in the past such as:
The Mountain Men Encampment
Many Old Time Crafts
Pumpkin Decorating for every child that would like to create their own pumpkin.
Remember the rules: NO COMMERCIAL DECORATIONS, only those that the children think up. BE SURE to BRING ALL materials and something to sit on. The ground will be damp from the dew. ONLY DECORATED pumpkins can be taken off the grounds.
Teachers, please make sure you tell all your parents this information. We don't want any hard feelings over a pumpkin.
A pamphlet of activities will be available. Note that activities may be added after the pamphlet is printed.
In the "Entertainment Building" you will find age appropriate entertainment for the students. They can sing along or dance to the beat.
In the "Agriculture Tent" you will find a cow (not real) to be milked and a chicken laying eggs. Students can dig for potatos, watch bees gathering honey and many more activities to show students that food comes from hard work and not the store.
Look in the "Arts and Crafts Tent" for spinning, weaving, and canning displays.
The Lions' Club of Milton will bring in eye screening equipment this year. Parents must sign a form for their child before this can be performed.
Please call Becky Cooper at (304)743-9159 and leave your name, your phone number, school name and number of students you will be bringing. The count is needed in order to ensure enough pumpkins for the students (preschool to 5th grades).
Hope to see you at the WEST VIRGINIA PUMPKIN FESTIVAL
