A child bobs for pumpkins at the Plattsburgh YMCA pool during their 2012 event.
continued Last year a large majority of the pumpkins came from a local orchard. This year, Marsh said they are hoping to find someone willing to donate pumpkins needed for the event.
“We will definitely have a pumpkin for everyone but if we could find someone willing to donate pumpkins it would be an incredible cost saver,” Marsh said.
Marsh said the event is an incredible alternative to going to the store to pick out a pumpkin and it is another alternative to bringing kids trick or treating for families who choose not to.
To help ensure there are enough pumpkins for everyone pre-registration is encouraged but not required.
Admission to the event will be $8 for YMCA members, $10 for non-members or $15 for families with more than one child.
