“Look at all those pumpkins!”

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – If you’re in the mood for some autumnal art, you can head to Preston Miller Park at 4 p.m. from Thursday to Sunday to see a host of pumpkins that have been painted by over 60 organizations and local businesses.

Just some of the contributors this year are Greenwood High School, Crossland Community Church, Buddy House, Bowling Green Junior High School and The Hive, who have offered up painted pumpkins to help out with the Bowling Green Parks & Rec third annual Pumpkin Trail.

News 40 caught up with Community Coordinator Braxton Sowell, who said “we came up with that around when COVID happened, because we had to find something for the community to have even though we couldn’t meet and have contact.”

Sowell said he works with a lot of kids through camp programs and after school events  with painting some of the pumpkins being one of them, and said he thinks that it’s something the kids really
look forward to. “For them to be able to showcase their you know, skills through art, and then for them to see it
on the trail and for them to know other people get to see their work it’s pretty nice and I think it
excites them.”

Of course the event is free to the public, so if you’re looking to have a little week day fun for the little ones then this might be a good stop to make.
