Note to Visitors :

    • ADDITIONAL RESTROOMS - In addition to the park facilities located near the Caboose (on either side of the Information Booth), extra restrooms are available next to the Gazebo stage.
    • NO PETS ALLOWED - Even though Adams-Ricci is a very dog-friendly park, pets are not allowed in the fairgrounds during the hours of operation (Saturday, October 12th 9:30-5pm & Sunday, October 13th 11am-5pm) due to the close proximity and large number of attendees.
    • NO LITTERING - Please be considerate of other patrons and our park by disposing trash and recyclables into the proper containers. Pumpkin Fest Staff will empty cans periodically throughout the event.
    • PARKING - Pumpkin Fest attendance has increased each year. Not everyone will find a prime parking spot. Please consider parking at Highmark and taking the shuttle that will drop visitors off conveniently close to the venue. This may add a few extra minutes to your Pumpkin Fest visit, but will undoubtedly avoid the parking lot headaches.
    • PARK RULES - East Pennsboro Township Park Rules & Regulations still apply during the hours of Pennsboro Pumpkin Fest operation.
    • INFORMATION BOOTH - Visit the Information Booth near the Caboose for specific vendor locations, contest & entertainment schedules, as well as Panther Station Picket Order Forms and Commemorative 20th Annual Pennsboro Pumpkin Fest Merchandise (reduced prices from last year).
