LISA’S WALL &
SATURDAY: 10AM – 4PM
We’re offering FREE carving classes so you can be a part of Nevada’s only Jack-o-Lantern Wall! On Saturday only, artists from The Generator will help you carve a one-of-a-kind Jack-o-Lantern for Lisa’s Wall. Your Jack-o-Lantern can be silly, scary, spooky…the possibilites are as great as your imagination. The pumpkins are provided. Space is limited. First come first served.
Lisa’s Wall will be built using the Jack-o-Lanterns carved and created by people in our community. Get your cameras ready for that perfect fall family picture. On Saturday night, we’re lighting up the pumpkins in a special ceremony.
Lisa’s Wall is named after the founder of PumpkinPalooza, Lisa Bonie, the Executive Director of the Northern Nevada Center for Independent Living. Lisa’s vision is to raise awareness for the NNCIL by bringing the magic of Halloween to local families. Since PumpkinPalooza was founded 10 years ago, Lisa’s dream has been to have a pumpkin wall at the event.
