Pumpkin Fest is an annual event that encourages residents and visitors to submit carved pumpkins for display along the historic downtown streets. Pumpkin entries will be accepted the day of the event from 4:30 – 6:30pm at the central “Pumpkin Tent” located on Main Street in Clinton.
Pumpkins can be scary, funny, or creative and should contain some form of luminary. All entries will be displayed along the downtown streets at 6:30pm. A panel of judges comprised of the Clinton Guild will offer prizes to winners of several categories, and pumpkins can be picked up at 9:00pm.
All participants are invited to vote for the People’s Choice Award. Neighborhood shops will remain open late hours that evening, many offering Halloween Specials for participants. This event is appropriate for all ages and will be held rain or shine. The Clinton Guild will also offer horse-drawn hay rides through downtown Clinton for $5 per rider.
