Event Description

The 25th annual UNICEF Pumpkin Contest will take place in the Stone Road Mall beginning at 6:30pm Thursday Oct. 26, and continuing throughout the day on Friday Oct. 28 and Saturday Oct. 29 until the Mall closes on Saturday. During those times carved or painted pumpkins made by a number of local schools, politicians, the police and fire departments, artists, celebrities, businesses, and other local institutions will be displayed. This year’s main theme is Goblins and Gnomes, with schools being offered an optional theme of Canada 150. Visitors to the booth can enjoy the display and vote for their favourite pumpkin by donating to UNICEF CANADA’S Famine Relief Fund that delivers life-saving supplies to where they are currently most needed. The pumpkin that receives the most money will be declared the winner. Pumpkins can also be purchased, and picked up after 5:00pm on Saturday.
