The Livingston County Library is hosting its 5th annual pumpkin decorating contest for children, families, and adults. In the Children’s Department, there will be five categories the pumpkin can be entered into: 2 and under, ages 3-5, ages 6-9, ages 10-12, or a family entry. There will be a prize for every category. Pumpkins for these age groups need to be turned into the Children’s Department. The Adult Department will have one category, with a prize being awarded to the winner. Pumpkins to be judged in this category will need to be taken to the Adult Department. Both Departments share the same set of three rules: 1) The pumpkin needs to be created by the individual or group that is submitting the pumpkin 2) No cutting into the pumpkin 3) The pumpkin must be submitted to either the Children’s or Adult Department by the deadline of 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct 20. Pumpkins of any size, shape, or color can be used. Feel free to stop in and pick up information about this contest. The pumpkin will remain on display for patrons to cast their votes starting Saturday, Oct. 21, through the end of the day on Saturday, Oct. 28. The votes will be tallied and announced on Monday, Oct. 30. Voting can also be done on Facebook. Pumpkins may be picked up from October 31 through November 4.
