MyFolsom.com and the Folsom Historic District Association are putting together their 4th Annual "Night of 1000 Pumpkins" on October 26 on Sutter Street in Historic Folsom, California. The annual event is expected to draw 5000 residents and visitors; Organizers are asking attendees to bring a carved jack-o-lantern to the event to display.

All attendees who bring in a carved jack-o-lantern will be given a raffle ticket, where they can win a variety of prizes from local merchants.

The evening will have lots of family-friendly entertainment, including:

  • Trick-or-treating with the Sutter Street merchants
  • Outdoor movies, with "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown," and "Ghostbusters"

  • a zombie "flash mob" may appear during the event as well.

Visitor are urged to bring pumpkins before the event. "We can't make it to 1,000 pumpkins alone," said organizer John Gladding, of MyFolsom.com. "We need everyone's pumpkins to make this a success... this is a community event!" Several businesses and schools are organizing pumpkin drives, including Intel, which hopes to bring at least 500 jack-o-lanterns to the event.
