Pumpkins in the Park


10/26/2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Hannibal Parks & Recreation is hosting the seventh annual Pumpkins in the Park — a pumpkin-decorating contest and exhibit — at Central Park Saturday, Oct. 26.

There will be a performance by the Eugene Field Pirate Pride singers at 11:30 a.m.  Winners will be announced at noon.

From 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. the pumpkins will be on display in Central Park. The pumpkins will be judged by the spectators. Each person will be allowed vote once in each category.

The categories are:

  • Scary
  • Funny
  • Creative
  • Hannibal Proud
  • Mayor’s Choice

Participants are being asked to bring pumpkins to Central Park from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Oct. 26 and can retrieve their pumpkins at noon. Pumpkins will be displayed at City Hall through Halloween and then will be disposed of.

Pumpkins can be decorated with paint, glitter, markers, etc., but cannot be carved. Official Rules!

Prizes are donated by SC Contact Centers and Hannibal Parks & Recreation. Each entry will also receive a pass to the Hannibal Ramp Park.

Scavenger Hunts

The Hannibal Parks & Recreation Department has developed Scavenger Hunts to encourage visitors to the Hannibal parks. Hannibal children, along with visitors to Hannibal, will have a chance to explore our parks in a different way. These free activities allow participants to learn more about Hannibal Parks and to earn a free treat from a local business in the process!

Here are the scavenger hunts available so far (check back for future additions).
