Pumpkins for the float must meet the following guidelines: 

  • Check in for pumpkins starts at 5:30 p.m.
  • Must be pre-carved
  • No more than 8 pounds once hollowed out - approximately no larger than a soccer ball
  • Must be rounder/flat (taller/skinny pumpkins will not stand up on floatation devices)
  • Must have a “top/lid” (note: pumpkins will be attached to floatation device through the base)
  • To keep the water clean, pumpkins cannot have any artificial decorations (i.e. paint, glitter, marker, food dye, paper, plastic, light bulbs, candles)
  • Pumpkins will not be returned after the float. All pumpkins will be composted.

Registration is per pumpkin. A pumpkin floatation device, glow stick and marshmallow roasting stick will be provided for each Jack-O-Lantern registered for the event. Registration opens in October. Minimum 50/Maximum 100
