Maywood Fine Arts is gearing up for its annual Pumpkin Patch Parade, the marquee fundraising event it hosts each fall. The fundraiser, set to take place on Oct. 14, 9 a.m., at the nonprofit’s base of operations, at the corner of Lake and Main St., will once again feature the main event — a 1.5-mile walk through the community that will start at 11 a.m.
This year’s theme is “Be You @ MFA.” According to a statement released by MFA, the annual fundraiser “helps support our mission to provide quality and affordable arts and fitness education to Maywood and the surrounding communities along with a safe space to teach more than 8,800 classes per year.”
This year’s entertainment will include Stairway of the Stars Dancers and Flip, Flop, and Fly Tumblers. Some activities will include a Ninja Warrior Challenge, a pumpkin bounce and obstacle course, among many others.
The Dunk Doctors, a popular acrobatic dunk act founded by Maywood Fine Arts alumni Andrew Cyrus, will return as the fundraiser’s feature performer. VFP
