2020 "Golden Pumpkin" Winners:
Neighborhood Challenge Award:
Platinum: Lifetime Achievement and Inspiration Awards
The Pumpkin Pavilion Organizing Committee and the Bay View Neighborhood Association (BVNA) are pleased to announce a neighborhood-wide, socially-distanced version of the beloved annual event. The “Show Us Your Pumpkin Pavilion” event will run from October 23 - October 31, 2020. Pumpkin Pavilion is normally held in partnership with Milwaukee County Parks at Humboldt Park Pavilion. This year, the event is pushing out the neighborhood, offering the neighbors the opportunity to use their spookiest creativity to create their own Pumpkin Pavilion display at their home. Neighbors will register online, and a community map will be created for people to plan their route to the participating houses.
“We are asking our neighbors to work with their family, neighbors or entire block to decorate their porch or front yard,” said Christa Marlowe, Pumpkin Pavilion and BVNA Volunteer Organizer. “Keep up your decorations through Halloween so visitors can see your spooky handiwork over the period of nine days. Get your families out for a walk, bike, or drive. Costumes are encouraged! Our goal is to get 100 houses and business on the map!”
