The Lakeport Main Street Business Association (LMSA) welcomes you to Lakeport’s 2nd Annual Pumpkin & Dia De Los Muertos Festival taking place in Historic Downtown Lakeport, between 1st & 4th on Main Street, from 11 am to 8 pm on Saturday, October 2nd. The LMSA had its inaugural event in October 2019 and is excited to be able to “finally” have the 2nd annual event on Saturday 2nd. The festival celebrates October and everything the Fall has to offer including pumpkins and Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).
This year’s festival will include a car show offering People Choice awards for the best festival themed decoration. The MC will be Lakeport’s favorite local Fabian “LOOCH “ Moreno from La Mexicana Taqueria with all-day awesome music spinning provided by DJ 800$MONEY.
During the festival, everyone will have a chance to guess the weight of The “ Great Pumpkin.” Make sure the kids don’t miss out on the Haunted House put on by Haunted Lake County. There will be other fun stuff for the kids including crafts, face painting and lawn games. There is still time to enter the Scarecrow Contest and you can go to our Facebook Page and website for more info.
The Clearlake Club will be hosting a Corn Hole Tournament for the adults and, besides a few other libations, O’Meara Bros is brewing up some special beer for the festival.
There will be fun and entertainment for the whole family to enjoy to celebrate October and the Fall Season. Of course, a must have at a Dia de los Muertos “Day of the Dead” Celebration is an altar to celebrate and honor those who have passed and you you will be able to add the name of your loved one to the altar during the event
