The Arthur Lighted Pumpkin House Display which is lit up from October 24-31 in the downtown Arthur area.
Pumpkins are donated from The Great Pumpkin Patch. Many are delivered to our local schools to be carved by students. Other area groups such as Boy Scouts, Brownies and Girl Scouts, church youth groups are just a few of the groups which will come to help carve pumpkins at Knights Court from October 18-Oct 22nd. Every one is invited to help gut and carve the hundreds of pumpkins needed to make up this unique display which is assembled by Bruce Wood and friends just in time for the lighting on the 24th. (I forwarded some picture Bruce Wood sent us of pumpkins and the house that you can show).
