Downtown St. Joseph Businesses Taking Part In Pumpkin Decorating Contest

With Halloween just about here, St. Joseph Today is challenging downtown businesses to show off the best pumpkin decorations they can. St. Joe Today Operations Manager Daniele Crevier tells WSJM News Pumpkins on Parade will run from October 23 through November 1 downtown as a variety of local businesses display their pumpkins and the public votes on its favorites.

“I’ve heard a bunch of different things,” Crevier said. “Some people are saying they’re going to carve it. Some people are saying they’re going to paint it. Since it’s out for a week, it kind of depends on where you’re putting it because carved pumpkins inside don’t really last as long. We’re very excited to see the variety they come up with.”

Everyone’s invited to head downtown, in a socially distanced manner, to check out the pumpkins. Crevier says you can then vote on your favorites at StJosephToday.com/Vote starting at 10 a.m. this Friday. Voting will run through the end of November 1, and then the top three winner will be announced on St. Joe Today’s Facebook page the next day. You can find a map of the participating businesses right here.
