The 7th Annual Ballard Park Pumpkin Tour will be held on Saturday, October 17th from 4:30 to 9:30 pm at Ballard Park. The evening tour features a display of over 1,000 jack-o-lanterns carved by local community groups and the general public.

In addition to the nonprofit organizations, members of the public are invited to participate by purchasing their own display area. Display areas are $75 and should include at least 20 pumpkins. In past years families as well as businesses have carved pumpkins for display. Those interested in reserving a display should do so by Friday, October 9th in order to be included in the map given to tour goers that evening. Pumpkins should be dropped off between the hours of 11:00 am to 2:00 pm on Saturday, October 17th. There are 50 areas within the park’s loop trail available for display. Displays may be taken home at the conclusion of the event.

The 7th Annual Ballard Park Pumpkin tour is a free event and open to the public. It will be held rain or shine. Ballard Park is located at the intersection of Hazard & Wickham Roads in Newport. Parking is available in the Rogers High School lot on Wickham Road.
