It’s no wonder thousands turn out annually for Burlington’s Giant Pumpkin Regatta & Festival. Not only does this event benefit a kid-centric cause — Linking Learning to Life’s youth leadership program, PILOT — seeing grown-ups racing around the lake in giant, hollowed-out pumpkins should be on every kid’s to-do list. There's also a tent dedicated to kids’ activities — Halloween-inspired crafts, cookie and cupcake decorating. Other festival doings include a fall-inspired pet costume contest, pie-eating contests, and food and craft vendors. Burlington waterfront, by the Coast Guard boat launch. Races begin at noon.
