Community Pumpkin Carving
Join us from 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 24 for Community Pumpkin Carving as part of our Halloween Spooktacular.
Work together or separately to carve a Jack-o-Lantern to help get you ready for spooky season! Carving tools, patterns and examples will be provided, but feel feel to bring your own tools as well in order to create your masterpiece in the Greenhouse Auditorium. Youth under age 12 must have an adult present.
Don’t have a pumpkin? A limited number will be available thanks to The Great Pumpkin Patch in Arthur. Reserve one when you register for the event. Limit one pumpkin per person ages 12+.
The pumpkin carving is free, but registration is required here and space is limited. Please register for a one-hour time slot. There will be a limited number of free pumpkins available, which can be requested upon registration (limit one per person ages 12+). Otherwise feel free to bring your own pumpkin to carve!
A special Bigfoot Hunt is also planned for that evening. Get more information and register separately here.
Pumpkin Carving Contest
Leave the pumpkin you carve at the park to be entered in Allerton’s first-ever pumpkin carving contest! The carved pumpkins will be lined up the Mansion Courtyard, welcoming guests to its doors until Halloween. Photos of pumpkins will be posted on Facebook, and the pumpkin with the most likes will win some Allerton swag!
