3rd Annual Pumpkins on Pikes Drive Thru: Saturday, October 24, 2020

Pumpkins on Pikes

The experience of Pumpkins on Pikes will be a bit different, but the view can be as festive and fun as your carved pumpkin. As we continue practicing social distancing, we have placed the pikes accordingly in our beautiful open field.

For $20, businesses, groups, families or individuals can enter a pumpkin in the pumpkin carving contest. If you prefer to just view the pumpkins, the drive-thru fee is $10 per vehicle and all passengers must remain in the vehicle.

Join us on the evening of Saturday, October 24, 2020 for the 3rd Annual Pumpkins on Pikes. With potential guidelines and/or restrictions, pumpkins and concessions will not be available for purchase at ILSOLC, so bring your own and display your creative carving skills! Carving tools will be available at no cost from 5:15p - 6:45p.
