Even a rainy day could not dampen the excitement at North Belle Vernon Community Bank Park on Saturday, Oct. 14, from 10:00AM to 1:00PM where families picked pumpkins and enjoyed painting them! 

“We love this park,” said Brandy Crevda of Charleroi who brought her son, Bryce, age 7.  “It’s the best in the Mon-Valley., and we didn’t care about the rain.”  50 free pumpkins in all were donated for the children by Circle C Club Lambs and additional ones for purchase if needed.  The Belle Vernon Public Library was on hand to give out crafts and was ready for story time with seasonal Children’s books.  A concession stand including hot dogs, chips and hot cocoa was available with an all-in-one special for a discount.  Spooktacular but “kid-friendly” music made the time even more special!

Cody Ambrose, long-time volunteer for NBV Recreation Commission was happy to put on the event for the community. “Our idea for the Pumpkin Picking Event came after we had cancelled the Community Fest,” said Ambrose.  “We still wanted to host an event that kids, and the community could enjoy, just on a smaller scale,” he added.   The event was a big success and a great time was had by all.
