Jackson Pumpkin Sale In Its 36th Year

jack-o_lanterns

This is the 36th year area residents will be able to purchase their pumpkins for Halloween jack-o-lanterns while benefiting the activities of the Jackson Hole Parent Teacher Organization.    PTO President Cathy Blount says this year; 16,000 pounds of pumpkins have been purchased for the sale including twelve bins of baby pumpkins which were very popular last year.  Still, despite the large amount of the popular squash, Blount says the PTO has run out of pumpkins before the sale was over almost every year.  Proceeds from the sale are used for school purchases that aren’t budgeted like books and magazines for the school library and miscellaneous classroom expenses.  Blount says this year, in addition to the pumpkins, the event will feature face painting, wagon rides, a photo booth, and baked goods for sale. The event runs from 10:00 am until noon, or when they run out of pumpkins.
