Before you head to the pumpkin patch to find the perfect specimen for carving, keep in mind the Glen Ellyn Chamber of Commerce is putting out the call for “bootiful” Halloween pumpkins.
The chamber’s annual pumpkin decorating contest is seeking fancifully decorated pumpkins, which will be put on display at local businesses.
The pumpkins will be judged and the decorators of the best of the bunch will receive $10, $15 and $25 Glen Ellyn Chamber of Commerce gift certificates, according the chamber’s Executive Director Georgia Koch.
Children may decorate the outside of a pumpkin – no carving – that is 12” or smaller. The pumpkins may be decorated using any medium chosen.
Winners of the pumpkin contest will be announced on Halloween.
A limited number of spots are open to participate, according to the chamber. Registration for the contest will be held through Oct. 19. Pumpkins must be dropped off at the participating businesses between Oct. 24 and 26.
