Are You Ready for the Pumpkins?
Join us in Central Park this Saturday for the 2nd Annual New York Pumpkin Festival, featuring a special walk for lupus awareness!
On October 25th the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation welcomes our summertime partner Camp Sunshine to our hometown for a celebration of pumpkins, Halloween fun, and support for families coping with life-threatening illnesses like lupus.
Presented in partnership with the City of New York Parks & Recreation Department, the festival runs from 3pm to 8pm in Central Park. Enter at 72nd Street in Manhattan and head for the Bandshell area in the center of the park.
Bring the entire family in their Halloween costumes! Pick up a free pumpkin at the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation Pumpkin Patch. Watch tens of thousands of pumpkins transformed into the largest jack-o-lantern display in New York City's history. Visit the Spook-tacular Haunted House. Enjoy live music and performances from the Big Apple Circus and others. Plus, face painting, tons of Halloween candy, kids' games, and more.
And the best part? We'll be leading a Walk for Lupus Awareness through the park at 5pm. Just send an email to register to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to our pumpkin patch, at our booth we'll be giving away orange "Life Without Lupus" wristbands, tasty treats and tons of important information on lupus. We can't wait to see you there!
