Entries received: 5 – 5:45pm
Judging begins: 6pm

Sponsored by The Friends of Washington Market Park, this is a free community event with trophies awarded in multiple categories: scariest, funniest and most creative to name a few. Bring your own pumpkin to enter, or just stop by with your family to enjoy the festive display!

  • Bring your carved pumpkin to Washington Market Park between 5pm and 5:45pm.
  • No carving will be permitted at the event.
  • Electronic candles will be provided for illumination.
  • Judging will begin at 6pm, and the winners will be announced shortly thereafter.
