PumpkinPalooza is a celebration of family and fall in the heart of downtown Sparks. Now in its 9th year, this annual event draws more than 25,000 people to Victorian Square for a full day of good old-fashioned fun. Named a top 10 Fall Event by Food Network Magazine, PumpkinPalooza features a slew of free and affordable wholesome events for all ages. It features Nevada’s only Pumpkin Derby, more than 20 homemade carnival-style games, storytelling, pumpkin decorating, contests, live music, food, and more.
PumpkinPalooza is a fundraiser to benefit the Northern Nevada Center for Independent Living. NNCIL was founded more than 30 years ago by a small group of people with disabilities to help others with disabilities hone the skills they need to achieve independent living.
