Time to get those creative juices flowing and come up with plans for your displays!
Spread the magic of Halloween in our community, by signing up for our contest. Create a display using pumpkins as characters or in your favorite theme that is clearly visible for visiting “Pumpkin Rompers”. Visitors will follow the route on our map, that contains all the contestant’s displays. They will vote for the scariest, funniest, most creative displays, for prizes and bragging rights.
All proceeds go to The Heart in Heart, a recognized 501c3 non-profit
