Get ready to decorate those pumpkins! Discover Monroe-West Monroe is hosting its 3rd annual Monroe-West Monroe Pumpkin Decorating Contest during the month of October. Participants are asked to decorate their pumpkin with a Monroe-West Monroe theme. They are encouraged to highlight the great things about Ouachita Parish through painting, carving, or decorating their pumpkin.
There will be five divisions: Ages 0-6, 7-12, 13-17, 18 and older, and businesses/organizations. Winners will receive Monroe-West Monroe swag items and passes to local attractions. Everyone who turns in a pumpkin will receive a small prize. Participants can bring their pumpkin to the Discover Monroe-West Monroe Visitors Center starting October 2-25. Discover Monroe-West Monroe is open Monday-Friday 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Winners will be announced October 27. The pumpkins will be on display for viewing in the Visitors Center throughout the month of October.
