Your 2022 Guide to the Best Weekend of Fall!
Article submitted by Katie Krenka
What comes to mind when you think of Fall? For me it is crisp leaves with the changing Autumn colors, cozy sweaters, and all things pumpkins! We will have all that and much more for you at the 10th Annual Everything Elko Pumpkin Festival! This two-day festival will be October 15 & 16 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Lamoille Grove with a variety of craft vendors, give aways, and delicious food trucks. We will turn the Lamoille Women’s Club yard into our own pumpkin patch. We offer a variety of pumpkin sizes from mini to jumbo, so please come pick your own pumpkins to take home! One of my favorite parts of the entire weekend is watching all the kids packing around pumpkins as big as they are! My family and I are committed to making this the biggest family friendly event of Fall! We believe it’s important for families to have these opportunities for connection and to make special memories together. This year is extra special for us as we will be celebrating our 10th Annual event. In celebration we will be giving away pumpkin bags to the first 175 people to purchase pumpkins each day! We will also have huge giveaways with chances to win 3 prize packs. Make sure to stop by the Everything Elko booth to enter to win prizes including a Blaze Orange Orca Cooler, a Hocus Pocus prize pack, or for the kids an ultimate pumpkin carving and decorating kit. In the Pumpkin Patch you can also find Allusive Images providing family photos to capture your memories. Stop by the Shabonya Dutton State Farm Insurance tent for everyone’s favorite treat, roasting s’mores. Back again this year will be our ever-popular coloring contest! Have your kids, from ages 1-18, enter our coloring contest. Pick up coloring pages at the Elko Area Chamber Sherman Station building beginning September 30th and bring your completed artwork to the Everything Elko booth at the Pumpkin Festival to enter your artwork. We will have age group winners and a Grand Champion that will have their artwork featured in the November issue of the Everything Elko Magazine and win a Pumpkin Festival prize pack. Our event is rain or shine, so pack your jacket and be prepared for whatever the Fall weekend in Northern Nevada has in store for us. Fall fun is just a short drive away in beautiful Lamoille October 15 &16th. Pleases join us for our 10th Annual Pumpkin Festival celebration!
