Great Pumpkin

You’re invited to the #TrekAt2 Halloween and pumpkin-carving party Friday, October 30, at 2 p.m. Central.

Attending is easy. Just head to go.boyslife.org/fblive at the time of the party and tune in via Facebook Live.

Pumpkin-carving expert John Points will join us live to demonstrate how to create jack-o’-lanterns like a pro! He’ll even show off his incredible skills and coolest creations.

Great pumpkin carving

On top of this pumpkin-carving extravaganza, expect other Halloween fun and surprises. Here’s a sneak peek at what’s in store and how to make the most of this event:

  • If your kids have Halloween costumes, they can wear them and share photos with us on Instagram using #GreatScoutPumpkin. We will show viewer photos during the show. This is a great chance to allow your kids to get festive during a year when so many social events can’t happen as usual.
  • Expect fall jokes and special guests (including a spooky but not-too-spooky monster you can chat with live).
  • In true Scout fashion, learn a few ways to make the most of the often-discarded parts of your pumpkin (Think: seeds and the stringy insides).
  • Enter your own carved pumpkin in our Great Pumpkin contest. Read on to learn how to enter!

How to enter the Great Pumpkin contest

Starting now until 2:30 p.m. Central on October 30, enter your carved pumpkin on Instagram by posting a picture of your masterpiece using #GreatScoutPumpkin. We’ll show your photos live during the show and select a few pumpkins to score their carvers cool outdoor gear.
