Join #1 New York Times bestselling author Jeff Kinney for a Diary of a Wimpy Kid Drive-Thru Pool Party! On October 31st, the one-and-only Jeff Kinney is coming to Doylestown, PA to celebrate his new book in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, THE DEEP END. This drive-thru party will be held at Holicong Middle School. 

In the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Drive-Thru Pool Party, families will drive through pool party–themed interactive vignettes, such as a lifeguard dunk tank, a tiki hut, a venture underwater, and the final moment when Kinney will personally deliver children their signed copies of THE DEEP END using a six-foot pool skimmer.

Trick or treating is looking a whole lot different this year, so wear your Halloween costume to the Drive-Thru Pool Party! Children’s books and Wimpy Kid-themed costumes highly encouraged!
