Jack-o-lantern contest at Pioneer Festival
Thursday, September 12, 2013 7:43 AM
Pumpkin artists are invited to enter their creations in the jack-o-lantern carving contest, a new feature at this year's Forks of the Wabash Pioneer Festival.
The carved creatures will be displayed in the arts and crafts tent throughout the festival, which will be held Sept. 28 and 29 at Hier's Park.
The jack-o-lantern carving contest is open to all ages. Pumpkins must be carved, and additional rustic decorations are permitted.
Contest entries must be dropped off on Friday, Sept. 27, between 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the information building at Hier's Park. Entrants will be asked to fill out an entry tag at that time.
Prizes will be awarded for the spookiest, most comical and most artistic entries. Winners will be announced on Sunday, Sept. 29, at 2:45 p.m. on the outdoor stage at Hier's Park.
Entrants may pick up their jack-o-lanterns after the winners are announced or at the festival's end.
