1) Drop off your carved pumpkin at the EECO on either Friday, October 29, 1 to 4 p.m. or Saturday, October 30, 12 to 3 p.m. (please use an LED light in your jack-o-lantern).
2) On Saturday, October 30, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. dress up for Halloween to tour the paths lit up by jack-o-lanterns and vote for your favourites (please bring a flashlight to navigate on dark paths).
Prizes will be awarded for the scariest, most original, cutest, strangest, and funniest carved pumpkins. Winners will be notified on October 31. All pumpkins not picked up at the end of the event will be donated to local farmers to feed chickens and other farm animals.
