Calling all pumpkin carvers and decorators – it’s time to start planning a Pemberton Park Pumpkin Tour display. The tour returns on Friday, Oct. 27, and the trail will be lined with unique pumpkins from the community.
The tour will run from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Pemberton Historical Park. Participants can register to have a pumpkin or display of pumpkins in the tour for free before Oct. 23 or for $5 if registering the day of the event. Pumpkins of all shapes, sizes and designs – whether spooky or silly – are welcome.
Pumpkin drop-off and setup will begin at 3:30 p.m. the day of the event. Lighting for pumpkins will not be provided and there will be no open flames permitted, so bring tea lights.
The tour is for all ages and costs $10 per carload, but people will tour the trails on foot and vote for their favorite pumpkin. Attendees can also enjoy candy, games and hot cocoa, with food and glow necklaces available for purchase. There will also be ghost stories at the amphitheater. People are advised to bring flashlights.
Register a pumpkin at the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center Box Office (Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.–6 p.m.) or online at www.PembertonPark.org. Contact Allen Swiger at 410-548-4900, ext. 108, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
