We are looking to have a 22" x 28" poster designed for our upcoming Fall Fest & Pumpkin Flotilla.
Target Audience: Families
Stylistic Preference: Bright and colorful
Colors: Fall/Autumn Colors (e.g. Red, Yellow, Orange)
About the Event:
Name: Fall Fest & Pumpkin Flotilla
Date: October 23 or Sunday, October 23
Location: Lake Ellyn Park
Poster must include (2) logos. That of the Glen Ellyn Park District and that of our local Rotary club. In addition, we must include the rules/registration information for the recipe competition and the flotilla, however, this should be feature prominently in the design. I have attached a photo of what a pumpkin flotilla looks like for reference. Space for a photo of a flotilla should be included in the design (we are waiting for permission to use).
The highlight of the event is the pumpkin flotilla, in which up to 50 participants can register to have their carved and lit pumpkins float on the lake. Other event highlights include:
- Live Entertainment
- Family-Friendly Activities
- Pumpkin Carving Demonstration
- Pumpkin Recipe Competition
- Pumpkin Flotilla
- Food & Beverages Available for Purchase. Funds will be in support of an organization yet to be determined.
Pumpkin Flotilla Guidelines * Limit: 50 Pumpkins
Bring a pumpkin that weighs about 8lbs after it’s gutted and carved (about the size of a soccer ball). All pumpkins must have the tops. Mini or extra large pumpkins and Jack-o-lanterns with any artificial embellishments (paint, glitter, glue, marker, etc.) cannot participate in the flotilla. A light and floating device will be provided at check-in. Drop your pumpkin off at the check-in area by the boat launch by 5:30pm. Please note: pumpkins will not be returned. Registration Code: 107446
Pumpkin Recipe Competition * Limit: 15 Recipes
Show off your culinary skills by bringing your best pumpkin dish and a copy of your recipe to be judged at Fall Fest. Please check-in for the competition by 5pm. Registration Code: 107447
