Over the last 16 years, the Blue Grass Nursery hosts the Pumpkin Fest Fundraiser, with all proceeds going to the Alberta Children’s Hospital. Unfortunately because of COVID-19, they had to make the difficult decision to cancel the festival this year. While you may not be able to visit their pumpkin patch and go pick the best one, you can still donate to a good cause.
