Before Halloween, a great family activity to participate in is pumpkin carving. This year take pumpkin carving to a new level by participating in the 2020 Racine County Eye Pumpkin Carving Contest! Click here to enter.
Prior to carving, you need to pick some pumpkins. Lucky for you, Racine County is full of options. Now, click here to find out where you can pick pumpkins closest to you. After visiting one of the locations, you can start mapping out the design for your pumpkins.

After working hard on your pumpkins, you’ll want to make sure that you display them on Halloween night. If you are planning to Trick or Treat in Racine County, click here for times and dates.
