Weekend To Do List, November 2-4, 2018

Welcome to November! Can you believe it??? Only a couple weeks until Christmas and not long at all til Thanksgiving! Regardless of the time of year we always find you great things going on in and around our communities. 

Do: Pumpkins for Piggies 

When: Saturday, November 3rd and Sunday, November 4th from 4pm-6pm
Where: Central Filling Station / 900 N Central St. Knoxville 

Have you ever wondered if anyone has a use for your decorative holiday pumpkins after you're done with them? Well, pigs just love pumpkins! Who knew? There's a humane animal farm with lots of hungry pigs not far and they'd love to have your pumpkins, carved or whole, to give as special treats to their piggies!  They are Hooves and Feathers Farm Animal Humane Society and they will gladly take all the pumpkins and other gourds you can give them. The pigs and many other animals will also appreciate any decorative straw bales you may have. They will make warm, cozy bedding in the cold months ahead.They only ask that you not drop off any painted pumpkins. They can't be fed to piggies!

A trailer will be set up at Bearden Place, outside the fence at Central Filling Station, to accept your pumpkins, gourds and straw bales. You can drop off your pig treats there, then come on in and have a wonderful open air dining experience for the whole family. They will be serving from 11:00 AM to 10:00 PM on Saturday and from 11:00 am to 6:00 PM on Sunday. They will be hauling off the pumpkins as soon as they fill up the trailers.
