Pumpkin Festival Coming in October

The Carmel Arts Council is partnering with the Carmel Mayors Youth Council to hold a Pumpkin Festival on October 25th, from 4:00pm until 8:00pm. (See The Pumpkin Fest Flyer).

The FREE festival will take place at Carmel Civic Square (by the fountain and the gazebo).

It will be family friendly and perfect for all ages. Costumes are welcome. We will have food vendors, entertainment, hayrides, WHJE radio station as well as Carmel High School clubs.

There will be pumpkin carving and judging. People may bring an already carved pumpkin to the festival or may buy and carve a pumpkin on site. We will award prizes in four categories – elementary, middle school, high school and adult.

All pumpkins must be at the festival and ready to judge by 6:00pm. At that that time the pumpkins will be displayed, lighted and judged. We will keep the pumpkins until the end of the festival at 8:00pm. We will then allow people to take their pumpkins home.

The festival is going to feature Lee Saberson who is a master pumpkin carver. He will be demonstrating his craft during the festival.

Any proceeds from the festival will benefit the Carmel Arts Council and the Mayors Youth Council scholarships.
