The Riverton Museum is asking local businesses to donate carved or decorated pumpkins for their first Pumpkin Trail on Saturday, October 17th. The donated pumpkins will be displayed outside at night, and candles will be provided by the museum for carved pumpkins. All decorations and carvings must be family-friendly.
The pumpkins can be dropped off between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm on Friday, October 16th, or between 8:00 am and 3:00 pm on Saturday, October 17th. With a donation of five or more pumpkins, you may also provide a sign advertising your business to go along with your display.
The museum will begin lighting the pumpkins at 5:30 pm on the 17th and the event will conclude at 9:00 pm. Admission is free. Hot chocolate and popcorn will be available with a donation.
Additionally, the museum will be offering a haunted walking tour of Riverton with Alma Law. Admission for the tour is $10. The tour will leave the museum at 5:30 pm and will last approximately 2 hours.
Pumpkins and display items can be picked up immediately following the conclusion of the event on Saturday, between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm on Monday, October 19th, or between 8:00 am and 12:00 pm on Tuesday, October 20th. Any pumpkins/display items not collected by noon on Tuesday will be thrown away.
