Petawawa Ramble featuring Pumpkin Folks
The Petawawa Ramble is an opportunity to enjoy autumn splendor and to savour, sample and experience the bounty of our community offerings. Over the course of the Petawawa Ramble festival different business events, workshops, tastings and programs are available for the public to enjoy.
The Pumpkin Folks element provide a self-guided exploration of local businesses and public spaces to see pumpkin folks on display. These pumpkin folks are a whimsical, fun way for businesses to show their community pride and decorate the Town. Come Ramble with us!
NEW this year, is the Business Pumpkin Folks Display contest. While we had our pumpkin folks displayed last year, during the first edition, of the Petawawa Ramble, this year we have added some new requirements and will have an option for the public to vote on their favorite business displays in various categories. Business harvest displays will begin to be created as of September 28th but the Pumpkin Folks will only be added to these displays during the Petawawa Ramble which will take place October 15th - 18th. We limit these displays to encourage return visitation and to promote all the elements of a festival atmosphere.
NEW this year, is the Residential Pumpkin Folks Displays. These displays are a way for our residents to decorate in a harvest theme and win great prizes from our local businesses. If you are visiting our community feel free to ramble about to discover the community creativity. The residential harvest displays are up from September 28th to October 25th.
