the sensational pumpkin contest

Saturday October 7th.  Bissell Park

Pumpkins Pumpkins Everywhere! 

On October 7th, 2023, it’s time to get ready to bring the family to Bissell Park.  

There will be pumpkin carving, pumpkin judging, and other fun activities. And, as a very special treat for one and all, there will be a pumpkin carving demonstration by a professional carver.  Sensational Elora will provide pumpkins for carving or bring your own pumpkin already carved or decorated.  The results will be judged by the attendees.

There will be entertainment throughout the event including:

  • Pawleys Pets Reptile Show
  • The Blue Bonnet Lassies will demonstrate their highland dancing
  • Fabulous Face Painting
  • Live Music throughout the day.
  • Mapleton’s Organic will be there featuring Pumpkin Ice Cream
  • Special Features - under the big tent, rain or shine  
    • African Drum Circle where attendees can participate
    • Indigenous Hoop Dancers

This is a free family event but we do encourage all attendees to please bring a cash or food donation for the Centre Wellington Food Bank. This celebration of the harvest season is a perfect opportunity to share with those in our community who are facing food insecurity.  At a time when so many of us have an abundance of family, friends and food, there are those in our community who, at times, need a little help.  Please be generous.
