Starting Saturday, Oct. 14, the two-day celebration known as Pumpkinpalooza Weekend kicks off at the Millican Reserve. It’s a five-year-old tradition in the Brazos Valley, attracting thousands of visitors each year. The weekend is the Millican Alliance’s annual fundraising event, and offers two days of family-friendly fun.
On Saturday evening at 6:30pm the Millican Music Festival will bring Texas music legend Tommy Alverson and friends to the stage. Guests will be treated to an intimate farm-to-table dinner as they enjoy lakeside views at the award-winning Millican Reserve Boathouse and dance the night away. A silent auction benefitting the Millican Alliance will conclude a memorable evening under the stars.
The next day from 11am to 4pm begins the Pumpkinpalooza celebration. The day will be filled with activities for all ages, including live music, delicious fresh food, shopping from local farmers and artisans, a kids’ zone, pumpkin chunkin’, and much more.
The mission of the Millican Alliance is to provide outdoor resources and education and to inspire future leaders in the Brazos Valley so that the community, both children and adults, becomes healthier and energized through an ever-improving connection to nature.
They believe that connecting with nature improves mental and physical wellbeing and that the health of a community improves as its members spend more time outdoors and in nature. And what better way to connect with nature than the Pumpkinpalooza Weekend!
