Pumpkins to take over Folsom's Sutter Street on FridayBy: Laura Newell, Features Editor
The Folsom Historic District will again be lit with pumpkins this month for the annual family event down Sutter Street.
The Night of 1,000 Pumpkins will be from 6 to 10 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 26, on Sutter Street in Folsom.
“Pumpkins will line Sutter Street and the outdoor amphitheater,” said Stephanie Rodgers, Folsom Historic District Association director.
There will also be performances from Cynthia’s Dance Studio, family friendly movies and a raffle drawing at the outdoor amphitheater.
Pumpkins can be dropped off for the contest from 4 to 6 p.m. at 200 Wool St., curbside next to the Folsom Chamber of Commerce. Participants will then receive a raffle ticket for every carved pumpkin dropped off, Rodgers said.
The evening also includes trick or treating with merchants in the Historic District from 6 to 8 p.m. and a children’s costume contest on stage in the amphitheater at 6:30 p.m.
“It’s a Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” will play in the outdoor amphitheater at 7:15 p.m. and a raffle will follow at 7:45 p.m.
The night will end with a showing of “Ghostbusters” at 8:15 p.m. in the outdoor amphitheater.
