Halloween Pumpkin Drop Festival


scarecrowThroughout the month of October excitement builds in the Village of Bellevue as more and more homes and businesses burst out with Halloween decorations. Then on the Saturday before Halloween the festival gets underway. The beginning is marked with Bellevue's Signature Pumpkin Drop. The Master of Ceremonies ascends 40' into the air above Washington Park and drops the ceremonial pumpkin to the ground below. The spectators cheer and and beg for more.
