  “Each year, the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere. He’s gotta pick this one. He’s got to. I don’t see how a pumpkin patch can be more sincere than this one. You can look around and there’s not a sign of hypocrisy. Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see.” (Linus from It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown)

  Each year, kids of all ages head to Kearny to visit our own Great Pumpkin. Judges see the costumes and choose winners in each age group for Cutest, Funniest, Scariest, Most Creative and Best Group/Family.

  This year was no different. The judges had their work cut out for them naming this year’s winners. And here they are:

• 0-3 age group: Cutest (Bull Rider) Lane Day; Funniest (Candy Seller) Milo Arellano; Scariest (Witch) Lauren Chester; Most Creative (Fisherman) Macie Olsen; and Best Group/Family (Rancher and Chicken) Cade and Cassidy Bravo.
