The pumpkin carvings are completed during the day within a six-hour time frame and then put on lighted display starting at dusk. The pumpkin carving artists will consist of 18 Master Carvers, plus National Art Honor Society students from Central Bucks School District who participate in the carving and showcase their talents via the Youth Gallery as they compete for the coveted Newfield Award ribbon.

As one of CB Cares Educational Foundation’s main annual fundraising events, Pumpkinfest provides a way for CB Cares to raise money to pursue its multifaceted goals, in keeping with its primary focus, stated as follows on the CB Cares website:

“CB Cares Educational Foundation, in partnership with Doylestown Health,
the Central Bucks School District, local businesses, and the community,
is dedicated to enriching the experience and education of students through
innovative learning grants and  Developmental Assets-based programs
that promote responsible and resilient youth.”

In addition, CB Cares Pumpkinfest is a drug and alcohol-free countywide event in keeping with October’s National Substance Abuse Prevention Month and supporting the message of ATOD (Alcohol, Drug and tobacco and other drugs) prevention. It is also at the beginning of Red Ribbon week, which is a national initiative that provides a message to students about the importance of being “drug-free.”

Don’t miss this fun and creative October event for an excellent cause!
