Despite the continuing spread of COVID-19, the City of Paris will put on its 20th Annual Festival of Pumpkins from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 24. In addition to this, the event will return to its original location in downtown Paris.
On its website, the city said that “the event will be modified for the safety and health of the public.” The event will still feature free activities for children, a costume contest, and pumpkin-decorating events among other things. Cash prizes will be available for winners for the person with the top costume and the best-decorated pumpkin. The city said it will make a complete schedule of events available to the public once the festival gets closer.
