Can you decorate the Most Artistic or Most Creative pumpkin in Vicksburg?


Children ages 5-12 are welcome to use their imagination, as well as paint, glitter, feathers, candy, fabric, carving, etc., to decorate a pumpkin or gourd to enter into our contest.

To keep the contest fair, entries must be decorated by a child only, please.
