Great Pumpkin Fair returns to Nags Head Elementary

By on October 5, 2017

Pick out your Halloween pumpkins and fall decor and enjoy a family-oriented festival at the Nags Head Elementary School PTO’s Great Pumpkin Fair, set for Saturday, Oct. 7.

Choose from hundreds of pumpkins and other fall decorating items such as mums, gourds and corn stalks. Help will be available for loading your selections into your car.

Also at the fair will be games and activities for kids, including bounce houses and mechanical rides, a rock wall, tattoos, a cupcake walk and  much more. Plan to stay for lunch with food and treats from local food vendors, along with a bake sale.


New this year is a live auction, in addition to a chance auction.

Nags Head Elementary School PTO is also selling raffle tickets. A $50 raffle ticket enters you to win a brand new 2017 Toyota Corolla, two Electra beach cruiser bikes, or a 55-inch flat-screen TV. These tickets are available in the NHES office, and only 800 are being sold. A $1 raffle ticket, available from any NHES student, offers a number of prizes provided by local businesses.

Kicking off the festival is the Great Pumpkin Run, a 1-mile fun run/walk starting and ending at Nags Head Elementary School. The Pumpkin Run starts at 9:45 a.m. Cost is $10 if you register in advance at OBX Go Far and $15 on the day of the fair. Registration begins at 9:15 a.m.

Proceeds from the Pumpkin Fair support the programs and projects of the NHES PTO. This is rain or shine event.
