Every child will receive a FREE pumpkin (or perhaps more!), PLUS many other prizes will be given away in the pumpkin drawing! This will be an outdoor event, so please dress appropriately for the weather. Also, due to the increase of COVID cases in our area, we will not be serving food this year. We will also be providing a "drive up" service. If you would like a pumpkin for your child but do not feel comfortable participating in the hunt, drive up between 10:30 and 11:00 am, get a free pumpkin for your child, and never get out of your vehicle! Hope to see you there!
