Pumpkin Run to support autism families

The Pumpkin Run will be a fun race of decorated pumpkins down the hill at Bishop Park. Participants are asked to bring their own decorated, medium-sized pumpkin; a racing cart will be provided for your pumpkin at the start of the race. Pumpkins can be scary, funny, artsy, or whatever you want them to look like. There are no winners or losers.
