Pumpkin Festival 2010
Welcome to the Pumpkin Festival 2010 Website
Pumpkin Festival will take place from the 22nd - 25th October 2010 !!!
The Pumpkin Bites Back
"THE PUMPKIN BITES BACK!" has been commissioned by and specially written for Virginia Pumpkin Festival.
If not the greatest show on the Earth "THE PUMPKIN BITES BACK!" will certainly be the biggest show in Ireland this year. The town of Virginia will be witness to a first of its kind, jaw dropping experience combining original live music, giant puppets, fiendish scientists and a monstrous laboratory with a cast and crew that makes Lord of the Rings look like a home movie. You've tried 3D now try 4D!!
This show is breathtakingly ambitious in scale and in content and promises to be as pivotal to scientific research as, say, man's first step on the moon.
The only difference is, you can be there!
The Pumpkin Bites Back will be shown on both Friday and Sunday nights , October 22nd and 24th on the town square, animating Virginia with lights, smoke and lots of drama just as the evening twilight is descending on the town. The stage alone will be 40 feet (five storeys) high and the characters will add 100 feet on to that again - you must come and see for yourself - it will be amazing.
