Niobrara hosted its first ever “All About Pumpkins” fall event on Saturday, Oct. 27. This event brought downtown stores and vendors together to provide a fun day of shopping for the community.
There was more than shopping, as organizers planned it to be a passport tour. There were about 30 stores and vendors and even a book signing, meaning participants had to gather stamps from all of them to be entered to win prizes. Many of the stores and vendors donated gift baskets to give away as prizes.
According to vendors, Niobrara’s business district has rarely been that crowded. The event drew a large crowd, not only from locals but from all over the county. There were even a few visitors that were staying at Niobrara State Park who participated.
Vendors hope “All About Pumpkins” will become an annual event to promote not only themselves but the town as a whole.
