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.
See all the action here!Whistler Children's Centre
