A little more than a month after Maywood Fine Arts cut the ribbon on its brand new state-of-the-art dance studio at 20 N. 5th Ave., the popular nonprofit is primed to host its annual Pumpkin Patch Parade on Saturday, Oct. 8, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on 5th and Lake St.

This year’s theme: Dream! Build! Believe!

The world-renowned Dunk Doctors, led by MFA alumnus Andrew Cyrus, will take the stage this year for a performance described as “fantastical acrobatics meets basketball,” according to a statement the organization released earlier this month. MFA’s Stairway of the Stars dancers and tumblers will also perform.

In addition to the performances, the day will feature “family games and activities, pumpkin bounce, photo booth, raffles, prizes, contests, challenges and more.”

The main event, the annual walk for the arts, will kickoff at 11 a.m. on 5th and Lake St. in Maywood. Hot dog lunches and a giant raffle will await walk participants when they return.

“Come support MFA and its mission to provide affordable, quality arts and fitness education that will enrich the lives of children in Maywood and surrounding communities!”
