On top of this pumpkin-carving extravaganza, expect other Halloween fun and surprises. Here’s a sneak peek at what’s in store and how to make the most of this event:

  • If your kids have Halloween costumes, they can wear them and share photos with us on Instagram using #GreatScoutPumpkin. We will show viewer photos during the show. This is a great chance to allow your kids to get festive during a year when so many social events can’t happen as usual.

  • In true Scout fashion, learn a few ways to make the most of the often-discarded parts of your pumpkin (Think: seeds and the stringy insides).
  • Enter your own carved pumpkin in our Great Pumpkin contest. Read on to learn how to enter!
