Pumpkin Zone

Does a pumpkin float in the water? How many seeds does a pumpkin have? You’ll find the answers to these as well as many other things about pumpkins at the Pumpkin Zone! Bring the whole family and play pumpkin putt-putt and other games, make pumpkin crafts, taste pumpkin seeds, and watch a pumpkin carver.

Friends from the Allen County Farm Bureau will be helping us provide pumpkin facts and fun, and children can color their very own gourd pumpkin to take home.
