Return of the Pumpkin People Awards

Date: October 15th, 2019

They set out to view each and every display with a two page judging sheet. These judging sheets include questions of did the property use their venue to their advantage, was the display creative, has it been done to excess in the past, and the most important question is there at least one real pumpkin head? The judges are also asked to count how many real pumpkin heads and or gourds have been used in the display. Taking all that information and lots more convert it to the judging sheet returning it to Pumpkin Head Quarters which is the Jackson Area Chamber of Commerce Office… where all the information is reviewed and scored.

Raises Much-Needed Funds For Local Health Services
