The trail of pumpkin people will depict various scenes Celebrating Illinois’ Bicentennial. Using approximately 75 pumpkins from St Mary’s Pumpkin Patch, 75 bales of straw and 45 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!
