Calling all carvers: Pumpkin contest upcoming

Staff writer

Businesses and people of all ages can win with their Jack-O-Lanterns at a pumpkin carving contest on Halloween.

All ages can enter the decorated category. A painted or carved category includes two divisions, one for ages 10 and under and the other for ages 11 and older. Businesses can enter decorated, painted, or carved pumpkins in their own category.

Contestants should bring their pumpkin to the Hillsboro Chamber office between 4:45 p.m. and 5 p.m. Tuesday for judging at 5 p.m.

The top winner in each category will receive a blue ribbon and a $25 Chamber Buck.

Hillsboro Convention and Visitors Bureau is sponsoring the contest.
