Each fall, the arrival of Pumpkin People to Clyde L. Choate Mental Health and Development Center in Anna, IL transform the grounds into Pumpkin Town. Oct. 12-21, 2018.
The trail of pumpkin people will depict various scenes from a theme yet to be determined. Using approximately 110 pumpkins from St Mary’s Pumpkin Patch, 95 bales of straw donated by Stegle Plumbing and 55 mums from Choate Greenhouse, it seems the Pumpkin People cast a spell and the campus dons a new look. The smiles and laughter of children and adults alike shower the campus with joy as they explore the displays and make pumpkin people friends. A continuous line of cars parade through the grounds, bringing thousands of visitors to witness the creativity and ingenuity of the displays.
You can also park your car, and enjoy a walk around the grounds in the nice fall weather!
