Afterglow coincides with Squashtastic at Wile's Lake Farm Market. We got involved because we thought this was a wonderful venue to showcase "squash art pieces". In 2014 we participated by creating a 16' dragon. During Afterglow we invited the public to decorate the creature with assorted squash, gourds and pumpkins! It was truly a public art piece. Lots of people - small children, teens and adults enjoyed decorating our critter.
We are happy to be back with another creature - Squashasaurus is ready for decorating. We will be located at the corner of King Street and the Veterans Memorial Bridge. We love being involved as it is an easy way for us to support an interesting community project and cross promote our event. Our staff enjoy brainstorming for inspiration and then building out the idea. Cody Whynot and Sam Richards will be on site to help people with the power tools and decorating. We are looking forward to having a warm fall evening of fun, just like last year!
