The 10th Annual Great Highwood Pumpkin Festival returns this October 11-13, 2019 to once again attempt to break a world record of most pumpkins carved and lit at once and officially kick off Fall festival season with family.
This fan favorite event is held to not only break the Guinness World Record of 30,581 for the most pumpkins carved all in one place, but to raise money to grant 100 wishes for Make-A-Wish families throughout Illinois!
With pumpkin seed spitting and pumpkin pie eating contests, a 5k, carnival rides, a corn maze, food and drink vendors, live entertainment from two stages, and more, it is truly a site to behold and the ultimate family event. The downtown is shut down and it truly becomes Pumpkin Headquarters for three days!
