One hundred and fifty free pumpkins are ready and waiting to be carved.
The Morrisburg Business Improvement area is inviting everyone to come by the Morrisburg Plaza the afternoon of October 26, to carve a pumpkin.
From 2-5:30 pm., pumpkin carving will take place at clock tower in the Morrisburg Plaza.
“Families are welcome to drop by and carve a pumpkin, that they can take home with them,” said Grace McDonough, BIA coordinator. “The pumpkins are free!”
Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Some carving tools including stencils and carving kits will be available, but people are can bring their own too.
Once the pumpkins are carved, they can be lit and placed with all of the other creative community efforts in the light the way display at about 6:30 p.m.
The idea is for the community to light the way to Pumpkinferno at Upper Canada Village for its visitors,
The carved pumpkins then go home with their creators.
The light the way display is the culmination of this year’s second annual Season of the Pumpkin People which runs throughout the South Dundas community during Pumpkinferno at Upper Canada Village.
This year featured children’s activities and stories, a pumpkin recipe contest, and window display contest.
