Pumpkin Palooza

Beautiful Downtown Lewiston’s 8th Annual Pumpkin Palooza is back October 28th from 12-4pm. This free fall festival will include games, crafts, costume contests, and market, as well as special events like The Great Pumpkin Roll!

Harvest Fair & Carnival

Main Street will be full of fun and free activities for kids of all ages! Thanks to our generous sponsors, we’ll have more games and activities than ever — everything from pumpkin golfing to spooky tic-tac-toe! Each will offer candy as well as non-candy prizes for each participant. Thank you so much to Costco for being our Candy Sponsor!

Are you interested in sponsoring or volunteering to run a game or activity? We’d love your help! If you have any questions, please call Erika at (208) 791-9269. You may return your completed form to the BDL office at:

301 Main Street Suite 103, Lewiston ID 83501


The Great Pumpkin Roll

Roll a pumpkin down the 5th Street Grade through a maze of hay bales, and if it ends up in the chute at the end you’re entered for a chance to win $500 cash!

Thank you so much to P1FCU for being our Great Pumpkin Roll Sponsor, and to the LCSC Baseball team for volunteering to run this popular event!

Local & Handmade Market

Be sure to visit the artisan market located between 3rd and 5th Streets for a variety of locally made products! Handmade soaps, beeswax candles, jewelry and more will all be available for you to purchase something special for yourself or get a jumpstart on holiday shopping. Wilson Banner Ranch will also be offering their amazing variety of produce, pie, pumpkins and more!

Are you interested in being a vendor? We’d love to have you! Merchant vendor spaces are $30, and space is limited so get your application in ASAP! We will accept makers of all sorts, locally produced items (honey, produce, etc) and a limited number of direct sales vendors on a case by case basis. Non-profit organizations are also welcome to join at a reduced rate of $10 per space. If you have any questions, please call Erika at (208) 791-9269. You may return your completed form to the BDL office at:

301 Main Street Suite 103, Lewiston ID 83501


Costume Contests and Spooky Pooch Show

Enter the costume contest in one of the six categories for a chance to win some great prizes!  Our judges will select one winner from each category: Baby/Toddler, Child, Tween, Teen, Adult, and Group. Sign-ups begin at noon at the costume contest booth located in Brackenbury Square, and the contest begins at 3:30pm.

Thanks to Petco, we’ll also be hosting a Spooky Pooch show and costume contest. Judges will select one winner to receive a prize bag filled with all kinds of goodies for your pup! A few guidelines if you plan on bringing your fur baby down:

  • Dogs must be on a leash at all times
  • You must clean up after potty breaks. Waste bags are available in Brackenbury Square
  • Aggressive dogs or females in heat are not permitted
  • Dogs must be current on vaccinations and are required to wear all applicable license tags at all times

Interested in Volunteering?

Volunteers play a crucial role in making this event run smoothly, and we are looking for a few hard working, energetic helpers who are interested in joining in to make this the best Pumpkin Palooza yet! Each volunteer will receive a Pumpkin Palooza t-shirt to wear the day of the event, so in order to ensure your size is available I will need to have confirmed commitments before October 13th.

If you are interested in joining us, please contact our volunteer coordinator Morgan Carson at mcarson@idavend.com or (208) 790-7174
