We are calling on business, individuals, groups, non-profits, schools and others to get imaginative and create Halloween scenes that will be placed along the trail. Entities can enter a scene, comprising 75 percent pumpkins or other seasonal gourds to be placed along the trail. The scenes must be lit.
