In addition to may other events through the summer every year Chesterton’s European Market has their Pumpkinpalooza on Halloween weekend. The kids get to trick or treat at the vendors booths, decorate pumpkins, and go on a hayride in the park. The Pumpkinpalooza is the last outdoor market of the season, which will be starting again the first weekend of May. It’s hard to believe, but that’s right around the corner.
While putting this video together I couldn’t help but recall the sights, sounds and especially the smells of the Market vendors. This coming season will be my 4th season at the market and I can’t wait. At the risk of being redundant I’ll say again, the smell of the food vendors alone is worth the trip. I challenge you to walk through the market and not eat something. There’s also live entertainment supplied by some great local musicians. You can find out more about the vendors, food and otherwise at their website www.chestertonseuropeanmarket.com.
