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 26th annual Original Great Pumpkin Giveaway, Thursday, October 22nd. First of all, the orange: Well, that’s obvious. It’s the estimated 3,000 pounds of pumpkins that will be given away that day between 4 and 5 PM. Most of them will fly across the table in a 15 minute period. 26 years ago KCST began handing out free pumpkins to local area children to celebrate its 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 16 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.
