Pumpkin Drop

The fall festivities continue with this year’s Pumpkin Drop on October 28th from 12pm until 4pm!  Bring the whole family and make landing gear for your pumpkin in hopes that it will survive a fall.  All of the participating pumpkins will take their drop from the Clay Center roof down to the patio in the Sculpture Garden.  Be sure to write your families name on your pumpkin so that it can have a proper announcement before it takes a tumble on this fun-filled day!
