Pumpkin People contest

Fall is an exciting and festive time of year. For Taneytown residents (or those whose journey takes them through Taneytown), it means the invasion of the Pumpkin People.

Imaginations run on overdrive as residents, businesses, and nonprofits choose a theme and bring it to life. You can join in the fun by creating your own delightful pumpkin people to be voted on by the community.

Applications can be picked up at city hall. To be considered for voting, displays must be complete by Oct. 20. All displays must be family-friendly and removed on Nov. 1. For more information or to register your display, contact Nancy McCormick at 410-751-1100.
