Pumpkinfest has been a fun family event that the NES PTO has attended for the past four years.

**The NES PTO will NOT be attending Pumpkinfest 2017**

The NES PTO has attended Pumpkinfest (now called The Great Falls Festival) in Turners Falls for the past four years. After much thought, the PTO has decided not to attend the event in Turners Falls this year. It was not an easy decision as this has been a fun event that the school community has looked forward to every year. The decision was based on many things, including the amount of work that went into transporting a large amount of pumpkins to and from the event and that the focus of this event seemed less about the pumpkins each year. Another reason is the fact that real candles are now not allowed in the pumpkins (this was a new rule last year by the event’s insurance company and something that the organizers of this event had no control over). The NES PTO wishes the organizers of The Great Falls Festival all the best for a successful event!


Thank you to everyone that helped to make Pumpkinfest 2016 a successful event for the PTO! With the help of a generous community, approximately $600 was raised! THANK YOU!!
