Pumpkin Boat Races

Want to watch our community leaders sit in a 500-lb pumpkin and paddle across a pond? Of course you do!


New to the 2019 Morton Pumpkin Festival activities, this race will be a spectacle for the whole family to enjoy. Join us at this new, wacky event that will be a barrel (or pumpkin!) full of laughs! The Pumpkin Boat Races are coordinated with support of Kennel Lake Sportsmen's Club.
