Braintree Family & Pumpkin Festival
For the third year in a row, McSweeney & Ricci sponsored the pumpkins for Braintree Family Day & Pumpkin Festival which was held at Pond Meadow Park on Saturday, October 16th from 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM. Hundreds of residents from Braintree and neighboring towns came out to enjoy the beautiful weather, and to purchase and decorate a pumpkin.
Activities included hayrides, food, games for the children, as well as face painting. New this year and a huge success, McSweeney & Ricci sponsored “Louie the balloon artist” who made balloon animals, flowers, and hats for the children.
McSweeney & Ricci employees handed out chocolates and reusable grocery bags for people to carry their pumpkins. Many people also stopped by our table to enter to win an Amazon Kindle with a case. Ivana Aiello, Claims Assistant and long time resident of Braintree has helped out at the festival for the past three years. Aiello stated, “We are happy and proud to sponsor such a wonderful community event. All the proceeds benefit nature and small park projects at Pond Meadow and it really brings families together. It’s also great for us to get a chance to connect with some of our Braintree clients.”
