CIRCLEVILLE -“This idea is 8 years in the making,” said Pastor Ron Vanhorn. ” We love our community and want to do cool stuff for all of Circleville. We just needed to figure out how it would work, we are going to do the best we can with it. We are hoping this will be a annual event, this is just the start.”
That comment from Pastor Vanhorn was 3 years ago, and since then the Vineyard church has continued to do the pumpkin drop on, “Night One” in Circleville offering a fun kids event for New Years.
Heres last years event:
Towns all over America are doing their own custom themed drops. Moon Pies, pickle plops, possum drops, and other weird and wacky New Year’s Eve traditions.
“Small towns all over America are celebrating in new fun ways and we want to do that here with dropping a Pumpkin Circleville. I do sculpture and design as my day job and we created the pumpkin to be something for the town,” said Vanhorn.
Vineyard Church wants everyone to come join an alcohol free family friendly event. “Come see whats going on, we have a limited budget on food but it will be free until we run out.”
The event will start at around 9 pm on December 31 and ends after the new year, at the Pumpkin show pumpkin park on Court Street in Downtown Circleville, so come out and have some fun!
