Some ideas for what to do on Sunday, Sept. 29, 2013.
"5th Annual Vermont Pumpkin Chuckin' Festival"
Stoweflake Resort and Spa on Sunday, September 29th, 2013
The VTPC Festival is a fun, family event sponsored by the Stoweflake Resort and Spa and other local sponsors. The goal is to give kids and adults a fun chance to build something with their hands and compete. The Festival runs from 11am to 4pm, featuring three rounds of competitive pumpkin chuckin' at 12:30pm, 1:30pm and 2:30pm, with awards shortly after the last round. Dogs and outside food or beverage are not allowed at the event. Admission to the Festival will cost $5 for ages 5 and over, free for 4 and under. Parking is free.
"2nd Annual Lost Dawgs Turkey Ride"
What: Join The Lost Dawgs Riding Club, Green Mountain Harley Davidson and Texas Roadhouse as they team up for the 2nd Annual Lost Dawgs Turkey Ride to benefit area needy families. Cost is $25 per person which includes lunch provided by Texas Roadhouse.
Proceeds from the event will help pay for full Thanksgiving dinners for needy families with children in the local community. The 2012 ride raised enough funds to provide a complete Thanksgiving meal to 50 parents and their children, and this year organizers hope to raise enough to feed 75 or more families with children.
The post-ride party includes lunch provided by Texas Roadhouse, prize give aways and raffles.
