Let's hang out in the Geek Mecca - Kendall Square in Cambridge! I can guarantee that I'll be there by 2, but with that being the Halloween party night I don't know how long I'll be there to organize, but come have a few pumpkin beers to kick off your Saturday!
The 2012 Great Pumpkin Festival! That’s right, CBC’s incredible and justifiably infamous Great Pumpkin Festival is coming up faster that you can say “Aaaaah! Pumpkin beers!!!!”
This year’s event will be held on Saturday, October 27th from 1pm – 12:30am. This year we’re likely to see upwards of 40 different pumpkin beers from breweries such as Elysian, Iron Hill, Dogfish Head and Allagash to name just a few. In addition to pumpkin brews we’ll be paying homage to the great gourd with a Pumpkin Inspired Menu from Executive Chef David Drew, a Pumpkin Processional, Decorations and tons of Great Costumes.
Admission is $10 at the door and beer and food tickets are available once you are inside.
You’ll also get this year’s Limited Edition Great Pumpkin Festival Pint Glass.
This event goes on rain or shine.
Children are welcome from 1 – 5pm, after that it’s 21+ with valid ID.
I don’t have menus yet, but stay tuned.
For now, just mark your calendars and start dreaming up this year’s costume.
