We need YOU to help us grow the Pumpkin Trail!   The pumpkin count is underway, and as of October 4, we have 500 carved pumpkins already pledged to the trail!  Our goal is 2,000 or more pumpkins!  We’ll provide the candles if you’ll bring us your jack-o-lanterns!  You can help us create excitement for the Pumpkin Trail by calling in your pumpkin pledges to “Pumpkin Central” at Hodges Community Center, 767-3706!  Groups bringing 10 or more pumpkins will have a sign posted along the trail with their name or logo on it.  Remember, the more carved pumpkins we get from the community, the longer the trail!

Deliver carved pumpkins to the Lubbock Memorial Arboretum on Wednesday, October 16 from 7:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.   Lubbock Memorial Arboretum is located at 4111 University and the delivery site is on the southeast corner of the parking lot.  Look for the “DELIVER PUMPKINS HERE” signs! 

The 5th Annual Pumpkin Trail is October 17-20, 2013, in the Lubbock Memorial Arboretum in Clapp Park and is a free event for the whole family!  The event is hosted by Parks and Recreation, the Lubbock Memorial Arboretum and the Lubbock Municipal Garden and Arts Center.  Thank you to our sponsors:  Lubbock Family Medicine, Betenbough Homes, United Supermarkets, Lubbock for Kids, Carlisle Motors, Thrifty Nickel, Lubbock Home and Family Magazine, Latino Lubbock Magazine, Bakers Office Products and Self-Storage of Lubbock.
