The Livingston County Library is hosting its annual pumpkin decorating contest for adults at the same time the Lillian DesMarias Youth Library is also hosting a youth pumpkin decorating contest.

According to a press release, there are 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 the Livingston County Library by 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 24.

Pumpkins of any size, shape, or color can be used. The Livingston County Library is

located at 450 Locust Street in the old federal building.

The categories for the youth contest include: 2 and under, ages 3-5, ages 6-9, ages 10-12, ages 13-18, or a family entry. There will be a prize for each category. Pumpkins need to be turned in at the Lillian DesMarias Youth Library.

In support of this community event, the Cultural Corner Art Guild & Gallery at 424 Locust St. will hold an open pumpkin decorating day on Saturday, Oct. 17 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Bring your own pumpkin and decorate (not carve ) it with paint and other materials supplied by the Cultural Corner Art Guild & Gallery, while supplies last. This is free and open to all ages. You can then bring your pumpkin to either the Lillian DesMarias Youth Branch (ages birth through 18) or the Livingston County Library (age 18+) and enter it into the decorated pumpkin contests.

The pumpkins will remain on display for patrons to cast their votes Oct. 26 - Oct. 31. The votes will be tallied and announced on Nov. 2. Voting can also be done on Facebook. Pumpkins

may be picked up from Nov. 2-7. Any pumpkins not picked up will be disposed of.
