The Cansler Family Y is hosting a fall family event, a Floating Pumpkin Patch!
They fill the pool with pumpkins; dive in, “pick” your pumpkin, then decorate your pumpkin at the decorating stations. They'll have all the decorating supplies you’ll need, plus individually-packaged snacks for the kids.
To assist with social distancing, please register for a 30-minute time-block in the pool (2:00-2:30pm, 2:45-3:15pm, or 3:30-4:00pm). Spots are limited in each 30-minute block, and registration is free for Y members.
Non-members are welcome to reserve a spot and participate with the purchase of a guest pass ($12/individual or $25/family). Only participating children will be charged; no cost for parents/guardians accompanying their children to this family event.
Join the Y during our Floating Pumpkin Patch, and they’ll waive your join fee!
Pumpkins have been graciously discounted by their community partner, Pratt’s Country Store.
Watch & Listen: October at Trailhead with Captain Redbeard
Where: Trailhead Beer Market / 1317 Island Home Ave. Knoxville
Every Friday in October, Redbeard will be steering the socially distanced patio through the open seas of Americana and popular music. The weather'll be nice, the beers'll be cold, but the friendship and camaraderie will be the greatest treat of all. Stop on down for live music in the flesh with the fleshiest of them all, Captain Redflesh.
