MAYWOOD, IL — Maywood Fine Arts (MFA) will host its annual Pumpkin Patch Parade on October 12th, 2013, with a community celebration at 25 North 5th Avenue, from 9am to 2pm. Participation for adults is $15 and $10 for children 12 and under. The cost of entry includes a t-shirt and hot dog lunch.

There will be performances all day by our Stairway of the Stars dancers, Mr. Ernie’s Flip, Flop & Fly tumbling school and competition team, and the MFA’s children’s choir. Families can compete in our obstacle course as part of a fitness challenge and win awards such as “Best Dressed Family.” This year’s even will also feature an appearance by Southpaw, the beloved Chicago White Sox mascot! The day’s main event, a walk for the arts, kicks off at 11am at 5th and Lake. Upon returning from the walk, winners of our Giant Raffle will be announced and everyone will get a free hot dog lunch.
