Pumpkin Party Pick-Up!

Post Date:09/28/2020 3:45 pm

Celebrate Halloween this year with Moorhead Parks and Recreation’s Pumpkin Party Pick-Up! On Thursday, October 15, kids ages 13 and under can stop by Memorial Park between 3 pm and 6 pm to grab a pumpkin gourd, some paint, and goodies. We ask participants to take the pumpkin home and create a masterpiece!

Once your pumpkin creation is complete, send us a photo of your submission for a chance to win some great prizes that include gift cards and of course, candy! Submissions must be received by Halloween, October 31, and winners will be announced on November 2.

Please wear face masks (the health kind, not the Halloween kind) when picking up the pumpkins and supplies. We also ask that you maintain a safe social distance between families and follow the marked path and directions. Supplies are limited and will be first come-first serve.

Photo Contest Submissions:
1. Paint pumpkin and take a photo of you in your costume with your masterpiece
2. Send the photo with the attached form to 

Pumpkin Party Pick-Up Submission Form

The Pumpkin Party Pick-Up replaces Moorhead’s traditional Haunted Mall event due to COVID-19 public health restrictions on large group gatherings. We hope you enjoy the Pumpkin Party Pick-Up and we look forward to seeing all of the ghouls, witches, and goblins again in 2021!
