There is a brand new fall tradition starting right here in Naperville, that you will absolutely NOT want to miss out on! The first annual Naperville Pumpkin Race Festival kicks off on October 15 at Rotary Hill. The Turning Pointe Autism Foundation is putting on this exciting event, and Chevrolet of Naperville will be there cheering you on! Gather your friends, family, neighbors, and everyone else you can round up, for the most exciting local event happening this fall season.


Whether you want to participate in the race with your very own track-ready pumpkin, or simply want to come check it out, Chevrolet of Naperville would love to see you there! Pumpkin Race Kits are available at the Turning Pointe Autism Foundation, the Koehler Family YMCA, and the Fry Family YMCA, for a $20 donation. Your kit will have everything you need to transform your ordinary pumpkin into a race car that will make both Cinderella and Mario Andretti jealous. Preliminary heats take to the track between 12PM and 3PM, before the Final at 3:30PM. Remember, spectators get in for free, and all ages and abilities are welcome to participate. Be sure not to miss this family fun day!
