Pumpkin Plunges!


Have you heard of a Pumpkin Plunge? Well get ready to dive into some Fall fun!

My local city pool hosts a very fun family event called the Pumpkin Plunge. This is were the recreational pool is filled with pumpkins for kids to dive in and pick one. Almost like bobbing for apples but in a lot bigger bucket. Along with the swimming portion of the event there is music, games and crafts. Once your little one has found their perfect pumpkin they can decorate it right there so when you take it home it is ready for display. I took my kids to this plunge before and they both had a blast. With this heat wave what better excuse is there to go for a swim!


The Temecula Pumpkin Plunge is on Friday October 3rd and is from 6:30 to 9pm. It is held at the CRC pool located at Ronald Reagan Sports Park. Pre-registration is recommended, to do so click here. There is a cost of $5 per person. Some of the pumpkins are a great size so the price is worth it and there is treats and games for the kids included as well.
