It’s that time of year, and we are carving pumpkins!  Avoid the pumpkin mess at home, and carve your pumpkins at Oktoberfest this year.  Kids of all ages are invited to participate in this FUN event, while supplies last.  Contest entry fee is $2 per pumpkin, and a maximum entrance fee of $5 per family.

The pumpkin carving will take place on Saturday, September 29 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Gazebo in  downtown Lake Stevens. 

Some of the pumpkin tops will be pre-cut for your convenience and even some of the pumpkins will be cleaned out ahead of time.  No mess! 

For the younger participants there will be markers, paints, and foam stickers provided to decorate their pumpkins.
The age group categories are as follows: 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. for ages 6 and under, 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. for ages 7-12, and 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. for ages 13-18. Prizes will be awarded in each category.

Thank you to the following sponsors of the Pumpkin Carving Contest: Tom Thumb, Safeway, Target, Carleton Farms, Taco Bell, Sahara Pizza and Bourne Orthodontics.

Rain or shine, we are carving up pumpkins at Oktoberfest.  Join us at the Gazebo on Saturday and create your pumpkin for the season.  Hope to see you there!
