The Village at Pumpkintown U.S.A.
The pumpkinheads first appeared at Paul’s and Sandy’s Too in East Hampton Connecticut in 1990 with the arrival of Leroy Butternut and Penelope Parton. Today the Village at Pumpkintown U,S.A is home to over 70 Pumpkinhead people and pets. Their unique village includes a fast food restaurant called MacPumpkins a saloon, a jail, a church, barbershop, country store, farm and a fire station.
A portion of the proceeds from admissions to Pumpkintown U.S.A. go to The Sandy Peszynski Breast Cancer Foundation. Sandra Peszynski, the co-founder of Paul’s and Sandy’s Too and Pumpkintown U.S.A. passed away in 2007 after a 25 year battle with breast cancer. Sandy played a huge role in creating, naming and dressing the many characters of Pumpkintown, and remains the inspiration for Pumpkintown to this day. In honor of Sandy’s memory, her family decided that not only will Pumpkintown be open to visitors every Fall.
