The Pumpkin Festival is welcoming and wonderful for everyone,” said Casey Sclar, the H.O. Smith Endowed Director of the Arboretum. “Hundreds of lit jack-o’-lanterns celebrate the art and skill of carvers of all ages who enter, combined with family-friendly food, crafts, and entertainment. We’ll even provide the pumpkin for you!” The annual festival will be held from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Friday, October 6, and from 3:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 7.
