The village of Newark will mark the fall season with a pumpkin sculpture contest on Oct. 22-26.
Local residents and businesses are encouraged to design and create sculptures in their front yards or outside their buildings.
The best residential pumpkin sculpture will win a trick-or-treat basket of holiday items. The Great Pumpkin Trophy will go to the winning Newark business.
Entries will be judged on fall spirit and original design. Participants can call (315) 331-4770, ext. 108 when they complete their designs so that judges can take a picture of the sculpture.
Entries must be called in before noon on Oct. 26. The photos will be judged on Oct. 26.
