Approximately 100,000 individuals in the United States have fragile X syndrome, many of them undiagnosed. More than 1 million people have or are at risk of developing a Fragile X-associated Disorder.
Participating in this event will not only raise funds for the Fragile X Association of Utah, but will also raise awareness.
Imagine it as the Festival of Trees only at Halloween -- that is the Parade of Pumpkins. Come see original Halloween Pumpkin and/or Haunted Gingerbread House Displays that have been donated  to be auctioned off for your Halloween Decor Dreams.
You can donate a Pumpkin Display or you can save up your money to purchase one where all the money will go to the Fragile X Association of Utah.
You can also vote for your favorite pumpkins and there will be prizes for the top three winners in the Parade.
You will also have a chance to get your face painted, enjoy some Autumn Treats and see The Master Pumpkin Carver, Aaron Reimschiissel's amazing carvings that will astound you.
Entrance fee for the Parade of Pumpkins is $1 per person or $5 per family, but any amount of a donation is gladly accepted.

This will be a lot of fun and will hopefully become a great tradition each year for you and your families.
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
All proceeds will go to The Fragile X Association of Utah.
