Join us for Orono’s 2nd Annual Pumpkin Walk will be November, 1st 2019. It will be held at the Orono Town Hall from 6:00 to 8:00.

Bring all your old carved pumpkins from Halloween (The night after) to the Orono Town Hall and the DBIA will light all the pumpkins.

Last year was such a great event, we had over 60 pumpkins decorated and this year we would love to have even more! It is quite a spectacle having dozens of pumpkins lit up at the same time. The best part of it all is that after the event is finished all of the pumpkins are going to be donated to local farmers to feed their livestock.
