Southern Mountain Fresh, in cooperation with Historic Downtown Hendersonville’s annual Trick or Treat Street festival, announces the Henderson County Jack –O’-Lantern contest. Pumpkin artists are invited to create their jack-o’-lantern from a Henderson County grown pumpkin and submit it for judging on October 31 between 4:30 and 5pm.
The drop off point is at the Jack-O’-Lantern Contest banner on the lawn of the old Henderson County courthouse on S. Main St. Judging will take place at 5 pm, and gift certificates for the winning artists will be awarded after 6pm along with the Costume Contest winners. All entries must have the artist’s name and phone number written in permanent ink on the bottom or back of the pumpkin. Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third places. Artists need not be present to win but may pick up their pumpkins after 5:30pm.
