The beginning of autumn marks the return of the annual FishHawk Ranch Pumpkin Festival. In its eighth year, the festival continues its tradition of providing the public with a fun-filled day of pumpkin carving, live music and family-friendly activities, all while helping local families in need. New home models at FishHawk Ranch will also be open for viewing.
Admission is free, but guests are asked to please bring nonperishable items for the food drive. Food, drink and game tickets are available to purchase. Proceeds from this year’s festival will help fund youth-oriented programs at the Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCA and Feeding America Tampa Bay.
FishHawk Ranch is owned in a joint venture partnership between NORTH AMERICA SEKISUI HOUSE, LLC (NASH), the U.S. business unit and full subsidiary of SEKISUI HOUSE, LTD., Japan’s largest homebuilder and leading diversified developer, and Newland Real Estate Group, LLC, whose development business, Newland Communities, is the master developer of the community.
