Pumpkin Lane

Over the past 22 years, Pumpkin Lane has evolved from the desire to give children a safe, daylight Trick-or-Treat alternative to a town-wide event  which many companies participate in, bringing 3,000 children and their adult chaperones onto our city streets.

My family has participated in Pumpkin Lane for years, first as business owners and then as parents, and it is hands-down one of my four-year-old daughter’s favorite days of the year. Not only does she get to dress up in her favorite costume, but she gets to spend a fun day with a few of her best friends, safely Trick-or-Treating and collecting as much candy as she possibly can. As a parent, I love the opportunity to check out everyone’s costumes and decorations, as well as seeing the participation of our local businesses. I rarely walk Main Street and Crawford on an average day, and Pumpkin Lane gives me a chance to see what new places may have popped up, and see faces I’ve missed.

We love the chance to see our community come together to brighten the lives of children and for us, it’s a family tradition we’ll keep celebrating year after year.
