Lubbock Pumpkin Trail Seeks Carved Pumpkins to Light the Way [Audio]

Lubbock Parks and Recreation, Facebook

Tuesday on Lubbock’s First News, Nancy Neil of Lubbock Parks and Recreation described the Halloween-themed event to take place this month and called for more pumpkin donations.

The 5th annual pumpkin trail is a pathway lined with jack-o-lanterns donated for the walk. Admission is free and open to the public. The trail is located at the Lubbock Memorial Arboretum in Clapp Park from October 17-20. The trail will be open from 6pm to 9pm Thursday and Sunday, as well as from 6pm to 10pm on Friday and Saturday.

Last year, the trail received about 1,500 pumpkins; this year, the goal is 2000 donated jack-o-lanterns. If more than ten pumpkins from one group are pledged, a sign will be placed by that group of carved pumpkins on the trail displaying the group name. Currently, there have been 645 pumpkins pledged. To pledge your pumpkins, call 806-767-3706.

“It is a community-built pumpkin trail. If they bring the pumpkins, then we build it, and they can come! We ask that folks pledge their pumpkins, their carved jack-o-lanterns, to us…and we will put them out on the trail.”
