2015 Pumpkin Festival

Posted: September 25, 2015

The 2015 Pumpkin Festival and jack-o'-lantern contest will be held October 16th and 17th at the H. O. Smith Botanic Gardens.

It's nearly Arboretum Pumpkin Festival time! Enter the jack-o'-lantern contest and view hundreds of lighted jack-o'-lanterns on Friday and Saturday, October 16 and 17. (Bring flashlights in evening.) Family activities and music from 4 p.m. until dusk on Saturday. Food vendors both nights. For contest rules, visit http://arboretum.psu.edu/home/whats-afoot/.

The Arboretum is looking for volunteers to help with the various aspects of this event (from pumpkin giveaways on October 11, to set up during the week, and clean up/composting on October 18). Contact Kelly Oleynik (keo5114@psu.edu) if you are interested in volunteering.
