FREE Pumpkins!!

You know the only thing I like better than a good deal is a FREE deal and have I got a good FREE deal for you!

Every October Coldwell Banker Real Estate in University Place hosts Pumpkin Saturday. It is a community service event that they put together with FREE Pumpkins, an antique firetruck, Rhubarb the Reindeer (Rainiers Baseball mascot), games, and on and on (and yes, there are Realtors on hand to answer any questions you may have about moving into a new home in time for Christmas, but let's get back to the FREE stuff.)

Basically, you show up and you choose from hundreds of big, small, oval, round, fat, skinny, squat, whatever pumpkins. Then when you find your perfect pumpkin you take it home for FREE!

If you are not a big fan of carving pumpkins but your kids are, guess what, one of the Realtors will carve the pumpkin with your kid for you! Maybe you're a big fan of destroying pumpkins? They can help you with that--pumpkin bowling! Feeling hungry? Cookies and juice. Kids want an arts and crafts project? They've got those too. You can even climb all over the firetruck and ring it's siren and "say" you are trying to get your kids down from there, they'll understand. They can't help themselves either.

The big day this year is October 17th--mark your calendar! Usually pumpkins are out and ready to be chosen by about 9am and the event lasts until they are gone or people stop coming by (around noon).

Pumpkin Saturday is open to everyone. You don't have to have purchased a house or be looking at houses or even live in a house {but you are welcome to look at some of the great pictures of houses they have for sale or talk house loans or listen to other people talk about their houses}

No matter what you've gotta get out of the house and get over to Coldwell Banker for the FREE pumpkins . . . . .

And pictures with Rhubarb the Reindeer!

PS. if anyone hassles you his name is probably Bob Call, he's a big teaser and the managing Broker of the office. Just tell him Dani sent you, he'll give you the royal treatment--he's my dad.

PPS Thanks Dacia for sending me these great pics of last year's Pumpkin Saturday, I always forget my camera.
