Pick It.  Lug It.  whoop it up!

Adore the gourd?  So do we!

Sunday Oct. 13, 2019

bring the family and your DOG to Mt. Holiday to kick up your heels ... and Paws!


The Great Pumpkin Dash and PUPkin Costume Parade is where pumpkins, dogs 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 for people and dogs 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!

All proceeds from the event will support Mt. Holiday, the Midwest's only non-profit 501c3 ski/zip line/mountain biking and the Cherryland Humane Society.
