The Great Pumpkin Race & More

Sat Oct 19, 2019
10:00am to 1:30pm ET
Age: 5-18
Price: $5 entry for races and decorating contests
Edmond Town Hall

Girls and boys of all ages are invited to build their own pumpkin racers! And decorate your pumpkins too! There will be food, music, entertainment, and a good time for all!

Pumpkin races are held for three age groups (8 & under, 9-12, 13 & over). Pumpkins must have 4 wheels and 2 axles, both of which must pass through the pumpkin.  Decorated pumpkin contests are held for the same three age groups, with prizes awarded for the scariest, funniest, and best decorated pumpkins. 

The Town and Country Garden Club will be setting up a table at the Great Pumpkin Race where they will be offering free pumpkin decorating crafts for children again this year. 

We are very excited this year that Newtown Savings Bank is sponsoring this wonderful annual event that features pumpkin races and pumpkin decorating contests. It's always a fun time for participants and spectators alike. Kids will enjoy searching for prizes among the piles of hay in the Treasure Chest.
