Mister Ed’s Elephant Museum and Candy Emporium hosts its annual free Great Pumpkin Party Saturday, Oct. 15, from 12 p.m. – 3 p.m.
More than 500 pumpkins are available for children to paint and take home free-of-charge during the outdoor event. Children who wear their Halloween costumes may pick up a small goodie bag filled with candy.
Throughout the event, acclaimed artist Michael Allison carves giant pumpkins raffled to benefit the Adams County SPCA. His pumpkin art has been featured in the White House and Vice President’s residence. Allison’s fanciful art can also be seen throughout the Mister Ed’s property as murals and elephants.
Registration is not required. Families are encouraged, if possible, to arrive throughout the afternoon, not during the busiest time of noon-1 p.m. There is no rain date for the event.
Admission is free and open to all.
