Pumpkin Pack Wednesday’s & Pumpkin Carving Contest!

Unleash your creativity, join in the pumpkin carving contest and learn about biodiversity in your backyard with this curbside pickup activity program! Through our resolve and resilience as Ontarians, together we will #PowerON.

2020 PUMPKIN PACK A GREAT SUCCESS!!  Amid these challenging times, Pumpkinfest and OPG were very pleased to offer a curbside pickup program in Bruce County. Families came out and picked up their FREE Pumpkin Pack filled with fun and educational activities children can do from the safety of home.  The program ran on Wednesdays prior to October 3rd. Each weeks’ Pumpkin pack featured a different community partner and activity.  It was great fun for all and the packages were sold out each week!  


The Pumpkin Carving Contest sponsored by OPG had entries from across South Western Ontario.  Kids and families enjoyed carving their creative wonders and sharing them with us. Pumpkins were carved in gruesome, funny, pretty and festive (including Christmas) themes. It was a challenge for the judges to choose the winners, who got a variety of prizes. 

Winners included the Baldwin Family of Port Elgin, Bray Family of South Bruce Peninsula, Weber Family of Walkerton, Robinson Family of Port Elgin, Burkholder Family of Brussels, Coltman Family of Port Elgin, Andrew Family of Hanover, Korniychuk Family of Southampton and Pick Family of Port Elgin.

Thank you to all who participated.  Check out the creations below!
