Pumpkins on the Bridge
October 30, 2020
Please bring and wear a mask and respect social distancing during this event.
It was once said that Pumpkins on the bridge started as a way to get rid of the evidence of trickery. A family woke up to lots of pumpkins placed in their yard one day. They decided to move them to the bridge. As so the legacy began and is still strong today.
Come join in the fun, bring your carved pumpkin(s) and candles to the bridge after dusk on October 30th. Come back the next night & replace your candle with a fresh one for Halloweens eve.
Good Times are Had By All. This is a free event and is family-friendly.
