Pumpkin mayhem will be hitting Ponoka at the second annual Great Pumpkin Hunt on Oct. 25.

The Great Pumpkin Hunt, hosted by the Word of Life Church, will take place at the Ponoka Composite High School gym from 3 to 5 p.m. and offers free and fun activities for children and families.

Shannon McArthur, organizer of the event, anticipates the event to be a good family day that everyone will enjoy.

“We hope to provide a local family friendly activity that appeals to children of all ages,” said McArthur. “It will be a fun way for people in our community to interact. The focus of the event is that we are all unique and have a special purpose.”

McArthur says the event attracted many people last year and she expects approximately 150 people to attend this year.

The event will include face painting, games, a creepy crawly animal section, a game show, candy, barbecue and, of course, a hunt for pumpkins.

Children ages 11 and under are encouraged to dress up in a non-scary costume and must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

McArthur is looking forward to the event and is grateful to the community for all their support in promoting the event.

“One of the core values in our church is investing in families and individuals and building strong relationships,” said McArthur. “This event helps to facilitate that and promotes Ponoka as a great place for young families to live. We hope to communicate that individuals are unique in order to help them accomplish their purpose in life and it is a wonderful thing to celebrate those differences.”

For more information or to pre-register contact McArthur at 403-783-8826.
