This annual family-friendly event will take place in Market Square. Families are encouraged and invited to bring their own jack-o-lantern. Don't want to deal with the mess at home? Pumpkin carving takes place in Market Square from 3-5PM. Bring your own pumpkin and create your masterpiece! Tools provided. 

Activities in Market Square start at 5PM. Pumpkins will be lit and placed on the stage in Market Square for all to enjoy! Each family will receive a votive candle that will be lit all at once at dusk.

After the lighting, attendees are encouraged to stroll the downtown to "ooh and ahh" at all the pumpkins designed by local businesses! At the end of the evening families are asked to take their pumpkins home for safe keeping.
