2023 Carnival Announcement

2023 Carnival Announcement

Dear Great Pumpkin Carnival Community,
We regret to inform you that The Great Pumpkin Carnival scheduled for 26th March 2023 has been cancelled due to a lack of volunteers. This event requires a significant amount of manpower to be successful and unfortunately, we were not able to secure enough volunteers to make it happen.
We understand that many of you were looking forward to this event and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We would like to thank those who did offer to volunteer for their willingness to help and support our organization.
We will be working on future events and hope to see your participation. If you are interested in volunteering for future events, please reach out to us via the contact page.
Thank you for your understanding.
Sincerely, The Great Pumpkin Carnival
