Pumpkin SMASH

October 28, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

UPDATE: Moved to the Rain Date of Sat Oct 28

SMASH a pumpkin – it’s that easy. Pick a pumpkin from the pile, choose from an arsenal of mallets, two-by-fours, or the trusty ol’ Louisville Slugger, and swing away. A Portsmouth tradition that has become the October catharsis of choice for young and old alike. SMASHing implements supplied!

We will have raffle baskets with goodies supplied by the vendors at the market, and if you haven’t gotten your new t-shirt or hoodie, you can pick one up here! All proceeds go to the Portsmouth Halloween Parade.

Price: $10/Smash (only $5 if you bring your own pumpkin!)

The Parade is NOT a city-sponsored event. It is entirely funded and put on by the community, which rallies a number of benefits to raise funds to cover expenses of insurance, permits, and police escort. We couldn’t do it without your support!
