Community Partnerships Keep the Pumpkin Lantern Festival Alive

COMMUNITY: Last year Anything Grows Cochrane Garden Center ran this contest to keep the community’s spirit up and to keep the ‘Cochrane Pumpkin Lantern Festival’ alive in our minds during Covid-19 & 2020, as the original hosts of this carving contest.

This year we are helping to keep this event alive in 2021 virtually, so that the tradition can live on, but hope to one day get back to this AMAZING in-person event at the Cochrane Ranche.

We’ve kept the hashtag the same as last year for consistency, as well we’ve collaborated with local businesses to bring you some fun prize packages!

STAY TUNED over the next few days and remember to send us your pumpkin photos by PM, email – (Pumpkin Contest in the subject line) or attached to the original post in the comments.

Remember to tell us which category your pumpkin is entered in ANDDDDD get carving Cochrane!

We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
