Jack-O-Lantern Contest

Carve an awesome Jack-O-Lantern or paint a festive pumpkin, and bring it to Salem City Hall to register for the 3rd annual Jack-O-Lantern Contest.  Jack-O-Lanterns will be displayed at Salem City Hall until 7:30 p.m.  After 8:00 p.m., we will dispose of the Jack-O-Lanterns that haven't been picked up.

If you would like to illuminate your Jack-O-Lantern,
please use battery operated candles, flashlights, or glowsticks.

  • No carving or painting is to be done on the display site.  Anyone wishing to participate must bring an already carved or painted jack-o-lantern.
  • The main part of the entry must be a pumpkin.
  • This is a family event--we reserve the right to remove/disqualify any entries that are deemed to be inappropriate or offensive.
