• WHAT: 26th annual Manteca Pumpkin Fair
• WHERE: Downtown Manteca
• WHEN: Saturday, Oct. 2, & Sunday, Oct. 3, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

More than $500,000 has been pumped into community non-profits thanks to the Sunrise Kiwanis Manteca Pumpkin Fair that returns the weekend of Oct. 2-3 to downtown Manteca.

One of the major fundraisers for the event is the carnival that takes place starting Wednesday, Sept. 29, and goes through Sunday, Oct, 3, next to JC Penney at the Promenade Shops at Orchard Valley.

The club makes its money off advance ticket sales that are now available until Sept. 28 at the Visitors Center on Grove Street near the fountain in the Orchard Valley complex, Golden Valley Credit Union across from Verizon on Center Street and Road Runner Glass in the 200 block of North Main Street.

Discount books of 30 tickets for $15 are available.

“It is not just a big savings on ride tickets but the club also makes their money to help the community through advance ticket sales,” said Kiwanis member Carol Davis.

A commercial vendor booth for the two-day street fair that includes free entrainment is $250 while arts and crafts booths are $180. Non-profit fundraising booths are $150 and non-profit information only booths are $75.

The two-day event typically draws nearly 40,000 people downtown.
