Please join us for the 6th annual Omaha's Great Pumpkin, a free family festival featuring pumpkin carving, a pumpkin pie eating contest, music & entertainment for people of all ages, local artist carvers, and adoption & foster care information booths.

At 7 p.m., please join us at the Village Pointe roundabout where the Omaha's Great Pumpkin tree comes to life as 913 pumpkins are lit, representing the children in Nebraska's foster care system who are legally available to be adopted. With each unique pumpkin carving, the "tree" becomes a stunning piece of art on display through October 31st. Family-friendly costumes encouraged!!
