The Great Pumpkin Give-Away

KCST’s 31st Annual Great Pumpkin Giveaway on FM 106.9

Pumpkin Giveaway begins at 4pm

Coast Radio and True Value Team Up Again For Pumpkin Giveaway

FLORENCE, Ore – Something old, something new, something borrowed, something… orange? That may be a variation on an old adage related to weddings. But Coast Radio and its sponsors are turning it on its ear for this year’s 31st annual Original Great Pumpkin Giveaway, Thursday, October 24th.  That’s when an estimated 3,000 pounds of pumpkins will be given away beginning at 4:00.   Most of them will fly across the table in a 15 minute period, so you’ll want to make sure you are not late because once they are gone, they’re gone!

31 years ago KCST began handing out free pumpkins to local area children to celebrate our 1st anniversary. That tradition will continue with the assistance of the Lemhouse family and Florence True Value, Old School Furniture and the Saw Shop.

The pumpkins will be piled up and then distributed for free to kids under the age of 18 while they last. The event starts at three with the pumpkins being distributed at four. In addition to the great orange gourds, there will be free hot dogs, A&W Root Beer and plenty of treats for the kids.

Coast Radio’s George Henry will be on the air live from 2:30 to 5:00 that afternoon.
