Pumpkin Decorating Contest

The Pumpkin Decorating Contest, sponsored by Ackerman Farms, is a favorite for local children and families.  All Morton School District children can pick up a FREE pumpkin at Ackerman Farms and then decorate it to the theme. The creatively decorated pumpkins are on display at the festival for all of our guests to enjoy!

Participants can use one or more pumpkins to decorate. Both individual child and family categories are available for the competition.
