Abbotsford Mission Recycling

A program of Archway Community Services

Pumpkin Decorating Event

Date: Saturday, October 23, 2021

Time: 9:00am – 3:00pm

Location: 33670 Valley Rd., Abbotsford

Families will have the option of decorating onsite while socially distanced in the outdoor space or taking the pumpkins and decorating kits home.   

The free event is held in celebration of National Waste Reduction Week and encourages families to decorate pumpkins without using cutting or carving utensils. This allows the pumpkins to be re-used for fall baking or animal feed.  

The pumpkins are donated by Willow View Farms. The limit is one pumpkin per child with a maximum of three children per adult. 

Whether they attend the event or not, community members can submit a picture of their decorated pumpkin for a chance to win a basket of Halloween goodies by using the tag #ArchwayPumpkins on social media.
