The Lawn on D will close in style this Columbus Day weekend by hosting the second annual “Punkin’ Fest.”
On Saturday, each person will be allowed to carve one free pumpkin from the giant patch, according to the event website. The pumpkins will then be put on a large scaffolding, and have individually controlled lights placed in them to create a spooktacular light show.
The goal is to create a 400-pumpkin spectacle, a colossal lit up “Punkin’ Manor,” twice as big as last year’s attempt. There will also be another, larger pumpkin patch for kids to decorate with stickers, paint, and markers.
