Pumpkin Give-Away on October 22nd.
The annual Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular and Carve for the Carillon were founded by former Rees Carillon Society Board Member Brenda Poston. These events are inspired by the Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular in Providence, Rhode Island – featuring the talents of professional artists only. Springfield’s event differs in that everyone is invited–from students, individuals, families and artists–from the community to participate and carve their own pumpkin at Carve for the Carillon (the second weekend each October). The following Friday and Saturday, more than 2,000 illuminated hand-carved jack-o-lanterns are displayed around the Carillon and the Washington Park Botanical Garden – showcasing carving talents of area residents, artists and local students. Springfield’s events are participatory and family-focused. JOLS features special Carillon music, lighting, sound effects, a unique Tree of Lights and food vendors. Fundraising proceeds include corporate sponsorship and admissions. Attendance ranges from 5,000 to 8,000 annually.
