Who is your favorite book character? Now is your chance to get creative and turn a pumpkin into your favorite character. Paint it! Dress it! Glue things on it! When your pumpkin looks like a book character, bring it to the Aurora Public Library for our Pumpkin Decorating Contest! Pumpkins will be judged on Thursday, October 12th at 5 p.m., so make sure you get your entry to the Library on time. Prizes will be awarded for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. All ages are invited to enter the contest as we celebrate some of our favorite books. If you need inspiration, just look on-line or come in and browse through our books. Lots of schools have done this activity, so there are many examples out there.
We are going to ask participants to leave their pumpkins at the Library until October 20th so all our patrons can enjoy them. At that time, you may pick up your pumpkin to enjoy at home for the rest of the season.
