There will be face painting, pumpkin carving, a costume contest, pumpkin trebuchets (pumpkin chunkin’!), and live entertainment. This year’s fundraising goal is $20,000.

This annual October event on the Town Green raises money for Camp Sunshine, a camp in Maine for children suffering from life threatening illnesses.
Camp Sunshine, set on Lake Sebago, has the distinction of being the only program in the nation whose mission is to address the impact of a life threatening illness on every member of the immediate family – the ill child, the parents and the siblings.
Since its inception, Camp Sunshine has provided a haven for over 30,000 individuals from diverse cultural and economic backgrounds. The money raised from the festival this past Sunday will allow almost 30 families to attend the retreat for one week.
