Pumpkinhead turns 21.

What started out as a stupid stunt downtown all them years ago has culminated in this. This year we change venues to Manzanita Place because Sierra Nevada Brewing Company is hopping on board to help us celebrate our 21st burfmas and we need the space! What does that have to do with anything? It means a big ol’ brewfest, food trucks, live music, a greased up naked ex-con hanging upside down from a basketball hoop*, and a lot more.
