Pumpkin walk this Friday, SaturdayThe GFWC Women’s Civic League and Tremonton City invite the public to the first Tremonton Area Pumpkin Walk this Friday and Saturday, Oct. 9-10, at the Holmgren Nature Trail.

Our community and the rest of the world have been going through challenging times, and this will be a fun way to bring us together allowing for social distancing and following government CDC guidelines. Be aware that this activity could be cancelled due to changes in COVID guidelines.

The hours for the walk are scheduled to be 4-9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 9 and 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 10.

The theme for the walk is “It’s Scary — But We are in This Together.” We will not be charging an entrance fee, but will have a donation box if people would like to donate. A portion of the proceeds will be used to enhance the park located at the trail.

We will be asking groups to set up scenes much like the North Logan Pumpkin Walk. Scenes need to include pumpkins and/or gourds. Each group volunteering provides their own supplies and a way to light their scene with solar lights or a generator. A generator could be shared by more than one scene if a group is willing to share. You will be responsible to clean up your scene after the walk has ended on Saturday night.

We are also in need of many carved pumpkins to light up the walk. Pumpkins need to be lit without using flames. Anyone is invited to carve and light a pumpkin. We are encouraging school groups and families to help out as well.
