Join the NoMa Business Improvement District on Thursday, October 27 at Alethia Tanner Park for delicious food, music from Too Much Talent Band, a seasonal scavenger hunt, our “pick-your-own” pumpkin patch, and our annual screening of Hocus Pocus (beginning at 6:45 p.m.) We will also welcome back award-winning children’s entertainer, The Great Zucchini, among many other exciting activations!

This year’s event will feature a pop-up beer garden from Red Bear Brewing Co. (21+ only). They will be serving their famous All Hallows Pumpkin Lager, Gourd Riddance Pumpkin Ale, and the Farmhouse Style Cider from Mt. Defiance Cidery (all beverages $9.50, no cash accepted).
