If you’re looking for an ungourdly good time, Pumpkinpalooza has you covered. The NoMA BID is giving away 800 pumpkins at this huge community event.
Northeast D.C. is lucky enough to have the NoMA Business Improvement District creating opportunities for friends and neighbors to get together and celebrate the city. Their signature fall event, Pumpkinpalooza, features an enormous carving party, petting zoo, and other family-friendly activities like live music by the Ryan Forrester Band and face-painting. Local food trucks will be there to tempt your taste buds, and festive snacks will also be provided for participants. This is the sixth year for this community event, and it’s slated to be the biggest one ever.
