Pumpkin Drop– Thank you to participants and volunteers for making our 2018 such a success~ $1789.65 was raised!
Don’t know what to do with those leftover jack-o-lanterns from Halloween? Head over to the annual Pumpkin Drop at Whistler Fire Hall 3 in Spring Creek, in support of the Whistler Children’s Centre. Families get the chance to climb up three stories and drop their pumpkin out a window by donation.
Firefighters will be on hand to scoop up the smashed pumpkins, where they will be deposited into a compost truck onsite. If you don’t have a pumpkin to bring, no worries there are always lots of spares on hand. There will also be warm beverages, baked goods and BBQ treats for sale.
