SMASH a pumpkin – it’s that easy. Pick a pumpkin from the pile, choose from an arsenal of mallets, two by fours, or the trusty ol’ Louisville Slugger and swing away. A Portsmouth tradition that has become the October catharsis of choice for young and old alike. $5/Pumpkin, SMASHing implements supplied!
We will have raffle baskets with goodies supplied by the vendors at the market, and if you haven’t gotten your new t-shirt or hoodie, you can pick one up here! All proceeds go to the Portsmouth Halloween Parade.
The Parade is NOT a city-sponsored event. It is entirely funded and put on by the community, which rallies a number of benefits to raise funds to cover expenses of insurance, permits, and police escort. We couldn’t do it without your support! Rain Date: Oct 27th!
