More than 800 Winston-Salem children are expected to converge on Wake Forest for candy, fun and a good time during the University’s 31st annual Project Pumpkin festival. The event will be held Wednesday, Oct. 30 from 3 to 6 p.m. on Hearn Plaza.
Project Pumpkin is a signature event at Wake Forest and one that Winston-Salem children look forward to every year. Students, staff and faculty work together to provide a carnival-like atmosphere for children, complete with trick-or-treating, games and prizes, educational activities and clowns.
This year, more than 90 student groups are expected to participate in Project Pumpkin. The theme is Planet Pumpkin, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 Moon Landing, and officials hope to educate children about the Space Project at this year’s festival.
