Halloween Pumpkin Tour

Pumpkin Tour

Get into the Halloween spirit with Pemberton Park’s Pumpkin Tour on Oct. 26, 2018! 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. 

New for 2018, there will be cash prizes for pumpkins/displays – $250 for the best overall pumpkin and $100 each for the spookiest and goofiest pumpkins.

This year's event will also feature a bigger and better hayride, a play presented by the Theatre Academy of Delmarva, a bonfire and entertainment at the amphitheater. Eastern Shore Kettle Korn will be on-site selling snacks, and Cub Scout Pack 184 will be selling glow necklaces.
