Don’t miss out on these fun fall festivities sponsored by Eudora Parks and Recreation:
1) This Friday, Oct. 11, from 4:30-6:00 pm your family is invited to Eudora Evening at the Pumpkin Patch. Enjoy a hayrack ride, see farm animals and pick out some pumpkins at Schaake’s Pumpkin Patch, 1791 N. 1500 Rd, Lawrence (just a few miles west of Eudora.) A hotdog and a drink is only a $1.00.
2) The Eudora Public Library is partnering with Eudora Parks and Rec to bring you the first ever Fall Family Art Walk on Oct. 17. The art will be produced by Eudora area children (K-12) and adults. To participate all you have to do it pick up a “canvas” (that looks suspiciously like a piece of copy paper) at either the library or the rec center. Then draw, color or paint a picture that symbolizes your favorite book on the “canvas.” Be sure to add your name and phone number on the bottom of the sheet and turn it in to either the library or the rec center by Monday, Oct. 14th.
Meet at 714 Main on Thursday, Oct. 17th, at 10:00 am to paint storefront windows of downtown Eudora using your “canvas” as a guide. Paint will be supplied but bring your own paint brushes, rags, etc.
The Art Walk will be held at that evening. Families will gather at CPA Park at 5:30 to tour the downtown area to ooh and ah at the masterpieces you created. Return to the park for hotdogs, chips, cookies and drinks.
3) The Great Pumpkin Hunt will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 29 at Lucy Kaegi Park, 1630 Elm. The event will kick off with a costume contest at 7:00 pm, followed by a pumpkin hunt (candy and toy filled pumpkins) at 7:30. Be sure to bring a flashlight as it will be dark. Preschoolers through 5th graders are invited to participate. In case of rain the event will be held in the community building right next door.
