Pumpkinfest 2019

September 14, 2019

Damariscotta

The 13th Annual DAMARISCOTTA PUMPKINFEST & REGATTA will soon be here.  My message today is an early call to our past and new volunteer artists to contact me now for painting and carving the giant pumpkins, and painting the hay bales for the 2019 PUMPKINFEST festival.   Many of our volunteer artists have already contacted me in recent weeks requesting to paint and decorate another pumpkin for this year’s festival. My sincere thanks to all of the early volunteers who have contacted me.
