A fall tradition for our family has been to attend the The Great Pumpkin Party at Valley Church.
Each year Valley Church puts on an extravagant and fun party to celebrate fall and Halloween.The entire community is invited out to wear their non-scary costumes and enjoy lots of activities including giant inflatables, pony rides, petting zoo, Jesse Joyner Juggling and Illusions, carnival games, free popcorn and much more. The Iowa League or Heroes will be there along with some of your favorite princesses.
All of the fun is split between two locations, Valley Church and the Valley Community Center. If you are not familiar with the location, they are right across the street from each other.
Nearly 6,000 guests attended last year! Because of its popularity they offer it on TWO nights. This year the Great Pumpkin Party will be held on Tuesday, October 17 and Wednesday October 18 from 6 to 8 p.m. If you have a child with Special Needs they offer a special evening on Monday, October 16 from 6 to 8 p.m.
This event is absolutely free and is made great by all of its wonderful volunteers. Interested in helping? Sign-up here!
