Pumpkin Carving Contest

October 30, 2021 @ 10:00 am – November 1, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

Saturday, October 30th, THELMA introduces its first-ever pumpkin carving contest! Prizes will be given to the winners for each age group. 

The contest will be divided into two groups: Children 12 and under and adults. You may submit one pumpkin per person. Embellishments such as paint and glitter are allowed, but adult submissions must include some carving. Free to participate, you bring your own carved pumpkin from home.

Participants must stop into THELMA and check-in at the welcome desk with your name and contact information. You will receive an identifying number to be written on the bottom of your pumpkin before placing it along our Plaza stairs!

Winners will be contacted and announced on the night of October 30th. Whether you participate or not, stop by and view the lit-up pumpkin display on our Plaza! The adult group winner will receive a gift basket that includes seasonal wine, custom THELMA wine glasses, and more. Children’s group winner will receive a gift basket with a coupon for a free THELMA art class and various Halloween-themed goodies! Participants are asked to kindly pick up their pumpkin by Monday the 1st.
