Puppeteer Alanna Jones brings the wonderful story of Mr. Venetucci, local farmer, who freely gave out 50,000 pumpkins per year to Colorado Springs children, starting in the 1950ís. It was his calling to give out pumpkins at Halloween, bringing joy to all children! This tradition of many generations continues still, although the farm is now managed by the Pikes Peak Community foundation. This puppet show is from an original story by local author Donna Guthrie, adapted by Alanna Jones.
