We are looking forward to the first ever Jack O’Lantern Jamboree which will be held at Kinnelon High School, Kinnelon, NJ on Sunday, October 28, 2012 from 4:30-6:30 pm, rain or shine. This is a FREE family event! Pumpkins are being sold ahead of time, and children and adults are encouraged to bring their pre-carved or painted pumpkins to be judged for prizes. There will also be a live pumpkin carving contest, a carving demonstration, kids’ games, a wheechair obstacle course, and a parade for the kids who come in costume. Many local businesses have donated prizes for the winners. The event will conclude with the Push to Pumpkin Walk at sundown, when the carved pumpkins will be lit around the track for all to admire.

When Suburban Trends approached Push to Walk with the idea of a fun, family event, we were very excited to work with them on a Halloween related theme and have an opportunity to raise awareness of spinal cord injuries at the same time. Since we always look for ways to tie our mission into our events, the idea of including a wheelchair obstacle course seemed like a perfect fit. Members of the public can see what it’s like to navigate a wheelchair for a few minutes, and try to do simple things from a seated position.

The live pumpkin carving contest is hoped to generate interest among the attendees, who will then bid on their favorites to take home with them if they are the high bidder. So bring your carved pumpkins to Kinnelon High School, and join in on the fun! Check out this link for more information:
