Mister Ed’s Elephant Museum and Candy Emporium will host its annual free Great Pumpkin Party.

Registration in one of three time slots is necessary to ensure adequate social distancing. The times are 10am-Noon; Noon-2pm; and 2-4 pm. Registered attendees may come anytime within their assigned time slot.

More than 400 pumpkins will be available for children to paint and take home free-of-charge. Halloween costumes are encouraged. Children 12 and under who wear costumes may pick up a small goodie bag at the event.

In addition to children being able to paint pumpkins, acclaimed artist Michael Allison will carve giant pumpkins. 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. Attendees are invited to enter a raffle for a chance to win one of three carved pumpkins.

Masks are required of all event participants aged 2 and older, as well as parents and guardians. No mask, no entry, no exceptions.
