Activities during the day include the Dinosaur Hill Pioneer Homestead and Playground, music, food, Guy Louis family concert, Stoney Creek High School Drum line, a Rochester Hills Fire Truck and more! Guests are invited to carve a pumpkin and place it on the stone walls surrounding the Museum property and return that evening to see all the pumpkins lighted up!
Admission to the Pumpkin Festival for Museum Members is $5 and for nonmembers is $8 per person and includes a pumpkin. Kids under 2 years of age are free. The Museum will provide stencils and carving tools but guests are encouraged to bring their own carving tools from home.
Evening lighting of the pumpkins runs from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm, and a financial donation in any amount is requested to support the Rochester Area Neighborhood House.
