Once again, we will have hundreds of hand-carved pumpkins lit and on display through the May Museum and Arboretum. Younger visitors will love the costumed volunteers passing out candy and treats. Enjoy a warm cup of hot chocolate or cider after the walk. Last year, more than 1,000 people came out to enjoy the seasonal celebration. This event is not-too-spooky and is appropriate for all-ages. The trail is stroller and wheelchair accessible. Costumes are encouraged.

Got carving skills? Whether you are a master carver or just tooling around, the May Center would love to see your jack-o-lantern creations included in the Pumpkin Walk. Drop-off your finished pumpkin by close of business on Friday, October 11. Due to the perishable nature of pumpkins, carved contributions to the Pumpkin Walk cannot be returned.

The Great May Center Pumpkin Walk is 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., Saturday, October 12, at the Wilbur D. May Museum, Rancho San Rafael Regional Park, 1595 N. Sierra Street, in Reno. The cost is $3.00 per person. To avoid the line, pre-sale tickets available now at the museum.

For further information call 775-785-5961 or www.maycenter.com.

Located within Rancho San Rafael Regional Park, the Wilbur D. May Center is managed by the Washoe County Community Services Department and continues to receive generous support from the Wilbur May Foundation.
