Pumpkin party


Rain or shine, meander through the Halloween splendor of 2,012 hand-carved, illuminated jack-o-lanterns surrounding the Carillon and Botanical Garden in Washington Park. This family-friendly event is a fundraiser for the Rees Carillon. Save $1 per ticket in advance at all Pease’s stores and Bank of Springfield locations. Food vendors will be on location. Organizers suggest taking a free shuttle to avoid the parking congestion at the park. The shuttle will be located in the Hobby Lobby parking lot, Chatham Road and Wabash Ave.
