Be a creative addition to our 14th Annual Pumpkin Trail by putting together a display! Create a fun Halloween/Fall theme for over 20,000 guests that come through the event. You must provide 15 carved pumpkins, we will supply 3 hay bales, spotlight, and LED candles. You can also supply a banner with your organization and/or a photo board for those precious family fall photos. Display would need to be ready for showing when we open at 6pm on Thursday, October 27th. For more information call (806) 775-2688 or visit

This year our goal this year is 2,000 pumpkins. The more jack-o-lanterns we receive the longer the trail will be. To make this happen, we need the citizens of Lubbock to donate their carved pumpkins to the Pumpkin Trail.

Carved pumpkin drop-off will be on:

-Wednesday, October 26th, 7 AM – 8 PM and

-October 27th (Thursday) 7 AM – 4 PM outside the Lubbock Memorial Arboretum at 4111 University on the east side of the parking lot. Look for the “DELIVER PUMPKINS HERE” signs. Groups bringing 10 or more pumpkins will have a sign posted on the trail with their name or logo on it. Pumpkin carvings must be family-friendly.
