 This All Pikes Peak Read program by 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 1950s. 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.

This event will take place at the BAC Venue 515, located at 515 Manitou Avenue in Manitou Springs.
