Pumpkins in the Park

Sat Oct 26, 2019
5:30pm to 7:30pm
All ages

Carvers and decorators of all ages are welcome to submit a pumpkin to the park’s annual pumpkin carving and decorating contest, and all attendees can enjoy Halloween-themed games and activities, costume parade, spooky music by Nate the DJ and more.

Also, the popular, pumpkin-lit “nocturnal trail" is back. On this Halloween adventure, families with little ones are invited to walk a short trail through the woods dotted with fun facts about the nocturnal animals found in the park. Along the trail, four "nocturnal animals" interact with participants and hand out candy to trick-or-treaters, so remember to wear your costume and bring a flashlight. 

Refreshments sold to support the park. Activities take place near the Music Court (stone stage).

Price: The pumpkin decorating/carving contest, games, music, and parade are free. Trick-or-treating on the “nocturnal trail” is $5/child ($10 maximum); pumpkin decorating is $5/pumpkin. No registration necessary.
