Halloween Pumpkin Tour

Pumpkin Tour

Get into the Halloween spirit with Pemberton Park’s Pumpkin Tour! Groups and individuals are invited to enter a pumpkin to be featured on the tour, which will wind through the trails of Pemberton Park at dusk. The public is welcome to take the tour and enjoy other Halloween festivities for just $10 per car. Free candy, games and hot cocoa will be provided. Food and glow necklaces will be available for purchase. This year's Pemberton Park Pumpkin Tour will include a longer trail, more displays and more activities, including ghost stories at the amphitheater.
