The Tokeneke Pumpkin Carnival is a favorite fall activity, offering something spooky and fun for children both big and small as Tokeneke Elementary School transforms into a Halloween-themed haunted house and amusement park.
This year, the Pumpkin Carnival is scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 13th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The rain date for the event will be on the following day (October 14th).
The 2018 Pumpkin Carnival features rides and attractions suitable for a wide variety of ages. For those seeking a thrill, make sure to try Ali Baba, the Cliffhanger and Zero Gravity. Preschoolers are sure to love the cars, trains and spin rides. In addition, the haunted house is not to be missed! The Carnival will feature a variety of new lawn games and activities plus familiar favorites like Pumpkin Plinko, the Apple Launch and the Obstacle Course. This year, School of Rock and Dance on the DL will perform during the event.
Carnival participants will also be able to enjoy a wide array of tasty foods and beverages from local Darien restaurants, such as Burgers Shakes & Fries, Heights Pizza, Bodega and Fjord Fish Market. A Newman’s Own lemonade stand will serve refreshments.
Tokeneke Elementary School is once again partnering with Darien Human Services to offer area families the opportunity to participate in the annual Pumpkin Carnival Fundraiser, free of charge. Last year, ten families that would not have otherwise been able to attend were provided with free ride and game tickets, as well as complimentary food and drinks. In 2018, we will look to the generosity of the Tokeneke school community to expand last year’s inaugural program and include more eligible Darien families in this initiative.
