Our Pumpkin Festival takes place in October and features a pumpkin giveaway, jack-o’-lantern carving contest, lighted nighttime displays, and family activities.

Many thanks to the Vargo family who has sponsored the Pumpkin Festival for nine years.

The creativity and variety of the entries delight festival-goers!

Carving designs have to be family friendly, but there is no overall theme. Categories are as follows: Age 2-4, Age 5-7, Age 8-10, Age 11-13, Age 14-18, Age Adult, PSU Students.
