“For its fourth year the NoMa pumpkin patch will return to NoMa Junction @ Storey Park on October 26, 2016 from 5pm – 8pm. PumpkinPalooza is the perfect free fall event for everyone. Guests will have the opportunity to carve or paint a free pumpkin, savor treats from local food trucks, enjoy live bluegrass music, and meet new furry friends at the NoMa petting zoo.  This year the Lemon Bowl DC will be joining in on the fun and teaching fall terrarium making classes, Urban Stems will be sharing fall floral arrangement tips and Green Heart Juice Co. will be sampling and selling their fresh juices. Pumpkins, carving utensils, live music, petting zoo, face-painting, moonbounce, and the pet costume contest are all free. Food, beverages and the terrarium making class are available for purchase.

Live music will be provided by bluegrass band Kingstreet Bluegrass.
