St. Mary’s Navilleton Pumpkin Festival provides entertainment, contests

By Allison Werner and Abbie Ewing


As a newer festival that is sure to keep growing, St. Mary’s Navilleton

Pumpkin Festival will take place this year for the third year in a row. And

as the name suggests, people can expect lots of pumpkins, but that is not

all that the festival will be offering. Games, craft booths, the Largest

Pumpkin Contest, face painting, bouncy houses, and performances by SIGS and

Backs Karate will be just some of the available activities.


With all of this going on, St. Mary’s has many volunteers helping out with

the festival. Sophomore Emily Naville is one of these helpers. She has

helped sell pumpkin ice cream at the fundraiser for the church. Naville

also enjoys the company of all the children that come to the festival with

their families.

“There’s a pumpkin decorating contest, and I like seeing kids get excited

about it.”

September 22, 2012 from 10 am to noon is when the Pumpkin Festival will

occur this year. There will be a Pork Barbecue Dinner in the Parish Hall

from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. For the adults, a dance featuring The Rumors will

take place from 8 pm to midnight in the Activities Center. To join in the

fun, visit
