Highlights of Pumpkin Walk 2017

Here in Cache Valley, every October, there is a Pumpkin Walk. It’s a free event which showcases a lot of creativity and talent. (By the way, if you click on the above link, you’ll be taken to the gallery where there are videos of Pumpkin Walks going back to 2013.)

This year, Marcus and I visited the Pumpkin Walk with several other homeschooling families in our Friday Nature Club. This is a club we started in September. Our club gathers on most Fridays for a hike or other outdoor activity.

Each year has a different theme. This year’s theme was “It’s about Time.”

 

The Pumpkin Walk began in 1983 when a couple opened their farm as a way to give children in their community a light-hearted version of Halloween. It began with just one pumpkin scene and was an immediate hit, attracting more visitors each year until it outgrew the farm.

Isn’t this too cute? Each group of critters is reading a book together. For example, the pig family are reading the story: If You Give a Pig a Pancake.

At that point, the city of North Logan took it over and moved it to a city park. It’s just a delightful event for children and adults alike.

The Star Wars scene was our top favorite.

My favorite Halloween movie!

♥ Does your community hold a similar event with pumpkins? I’d love to hear about it. ♥

  1. We have a local pumpkin walk just 2 miles from our home, but we don’t attend because traffic and congestion are so, so, so, so bad that I can’t face it. I tried one year, but I gave up before I even found the parking lot.

    Those are such cute scenes . . . and the whole ” . . . these are the gourds they are looking for?” is FUNNY!

    1. I think it’s neat how the city took it over and has kept it going. Every day they held it (five days) it was packed with visitors.

      The songs from Nightmare Before Christmas are catchy, aren’t they? We saw a giant talking Jack at the Halloween store. Too expensive for me, but it was cool.
