Kendrick Park was the site of the 2nd Annual Jodi’s Heart Pumpkin Carving and Decorating Contest this past Saturday afternoon.

Music, a spook house, and lunch were all part of the fun, but the gist of the afternoon was the fine array of jack-o-lanterns carved by the clients and public alike. 

A family event, contestants had to pay $1 to enter their prized pumpkins into the judging.

Included in this year's pumpkin judging was how much time each client spent making their creations.  Director Jodi Smith explains.

Michael Vanderhoef is a client at Jodi’s Heart and drew a truck and horse trailer on his pumpkin…all by himself.

Jodi's Heart serves clients with special needs and brain injuries.

Look for the prize-winning pumpkins which will be displayed about town.
