My how time flies, can you believe that Halloween is already knocking on our door? And you know what that means – it’s time for Pumpkin Fest! This year, the fest is in downtown Keene, and scaled back a bit from years past with new energy and focus, held this Sunday, October 27th from 1 PM-7 PM.

We at Masiello are happy to see the spirit of New Hampshire and Pumpkin Fest survive and appreciate all the work that goes into making our local community such a beautiful place.

This years’ Pumpkin Fest is geared toward families offering all types of fun, low key (free!) events. There are kid-friendly music and dance performances, art activities, and games, including pumpkin bowling and corn hole, and a parade of children’s costumes starting at 1:15 PM. Also fun for all is an early trick-or-treat where downtown businesses will be handing out candy from 2-3:30 to those aptly dressed for the occasion!

The event is run by a local nonprofit, Let It Shine, whose mission is to create a community-hosted, family-friendly celebration of fall and of what is unique about New Hampshire. It is also a celebration of artistry and creativity and a demonstration of our commitment to non-profit efforts to serve those in need.

Be sure to participate in one of New Hampshire’s finest traditions and get yourself to the fest! We look forward to many happy, family-friendly years and hope to keep the tradition alive and well. For a complete schedule of events or general info on the festival, check out Pumpkin Fest Website or the Pumpkin Fest’s Facebook Page.

After all the fall and Halloween celebrating, if you find yourself in need of a new position or assistance with making a job transition, we are here to help. Much like the traditions of our pumpkin festivals, our office has been helping local clients and employees meet their employment needs for many years. Give us a call!
