Weyburn Tourism, Prairie Sky Co-op, and Southeast College Saskatchewan are coming together to bring the first Annual Pumpkin Lane to Weyburn.
The family-friendly event showcases Weyburn’s trails, and pumpkins carved by members of the community.
“We were approached by Prairie Sky Co-op this past summer to collaborate on a couple of different things just over the summer, and now we want to continue that partnership,” Executive Director with Weyburn Tourism, Monica Osborn said. “We're trying to branch out and collaborate with more businesses because a lot of places are limited with their employees and their staff, and the more things that we can collaborate on with people, the better that we can provide events such as Pumpkin Lane.”
Businesses, residents, and organizations are invited to get involved by carving pumpkins and bringing them to the event.
“We are partnering with the Co-op and they have brought in a select number of pumpkins that we are able to provide to businesses if they want to do a team-building event with their group and carve pumpkins, or if there are individuals that are interested in helping us light up the walking trails that we have in Weyburn,” Osborn Explained.
Businesses can also set up a station to hand out treats or promotional items. They are asked to book a space as soon as possible by calling the Weyburn Tourism office at 306-842-4738.
“They can come set up a tent or a table, and get it lit up with Halloween stuff of their choice.”
The event takes place on Saturday, October 29th at the Community Dog Park Trails at 1st Avenue Northwest and Alymer Street.
Pumpkin drop is from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., the event goes from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., and pumpkin pickup is from 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Any pumpkins that are not collected will be donated to a local farmer.
