Pick it. Lug it. Whoop it up!
Adore the gourd? So do we!
On Sunday Oct. 14, bring the family to Mt. Holiday to kick up your heels!

The Great Pumpkin Dash is where pumpkins and their people have one goal: crossing the finish line ... unsquashed. It is for all ages with prizes for best costume, heaviest lug, and more! Costumes strongly encouraged!

The Dash rolls through Mt. Holiday's woodsy terrain, taking costumed luggers of all ages through four fun obstacles.

There is a catch though: Everybody big and small has to carry a pumpkin! Before the dash begins, pick your special pumpkin from our patch. We will weigh it and mark it. If you're really brave, pick two! Your arms will love you for it.

The goal? Finish the lug, squash intact!
