Pumpkinfest Powers On with Pumpkin Pack Wednesdays

For those who may have missed it in OPG’s recent ‘In the Community‘ article, Pumpkinfest will be powering on in a different way this year.  For the children, OPG is sponsoring Pumpkin Pack Wednesdays at Hi-Berry Farm on Hwy. 21 between Port Elgin and Southampton.

Pumpkinfest Powers On!  Hurrah to the organizers, volunteers, sponsors and participants in Pumpkinfest 2020 in Port Elgin, for finding a way to deliver wagonloads of fun, even in this unusual year when so many festivals have been cancelled. Pumpkinfest this year is a “virtual” event, and Ontario Power Generation is plugged in, sponsoring Pumpkin Pack Wednesdays.

Families can pick up a FREE Pumpkin Pack filled with activities for children to enjoy from the safety of home. Each week’s pack features a different community partner and activity – outdoor adventures, plantings or crafts – co-sponsored by OPG, Pumpkinfest, MacGregor Point Provincial Park, Saugeen Valley Conservation Authority, and Historic Saugeen Métis.  You can pick up your Pumpkin Pack at Hi-Berry Farm, north of Port Elgin on Highway 21, on Wednesday, Sept. 16, 23 or 30, between 3 and 5 p.m. (Quantities are limited – limit of three per family/car each week). Also, please visit the Pumpkinfest website to learn more about the OPG-sponsored pumpkin-carving contest – deadline to enter is Friday, Oct. 2. Together we will #PowerOn!
