Pumpkin Regatta

For the 15th year at the festival, courageous seafarers will race their giant pumpkin boats across the lake in the Pumpkin Regatta. If you are over the age of 18, have access to a giant pumpkin, and think you have what it takes to cross the lake in these devious vessels, join us on the first weekend in October! 

Giant thanks to 2022 prize sponsor Kids Care Dental & Orthodontics.
