Pumpkintown U.S.A. at Pumpkintown East Hampton
September 21, 2019 - October 31, 2019
Pumpkintown U.S.A. will be held on September 21st through October 31st from 10 am to 5 pm at Pumpkintown in East Hampton, weather permitting.
The pumpkinheads first appeared at Paul’s & Sandy’s Too in East Hampton Connecticut in 1990 with the arrival of Leroy Butternut and Penelope Parton. Their population grew with each passing year, and the people of East Hampton welcomed each new resident with open arms.
In 1993, when their population reached 38, the pumpkinheads asked Paul & Sandy if they could build a town at their business. Paul & Sandy were thrilled that the pumpkinheads wanted to stay and quickly agreed.
The pumpkinheads worked night and day to build a complete village for themselves. Pumpkintown USA, the town they now called home included a fast food restaurant called Mac Pumpkins, a Saloon, a Jail, a Church a country store, and of course, a farm.
Pumpkintown became so popular with the people of East Hampton, word quickly got out and before long folks were traveling quite some distance to visit the pumpkinheads in their unique village.
Over the years Pumpkintown USA continued to grow in both scale and population. And it’s popularity as a premiere non-scary Fall destination continues to grow too. As many as 25,000 people visit Pumpkintown USA in the six weeks that it is open.
