‘Project Pumpkin’ to be held in Reynolds Gymnasium

Due to rain in the forecast, Project Pumpkin will be held in Reynolds Gym on Wed., Oct. 28., from 3 to 6 p.m.

More than 800 Winston-Salem area children are expected to attend Wake Forest’s annual Halloween festival. This year’s festival will have an “Under the Sea” theme based on popular movies and television shows such as The Little Mermaid, Finding Nemo and Spongebob Squarepants.

In 1989, Wake Forest students started a Halloween festival on campus for local children. Twenty-seven years later, Project Pumpkin has become a Wake Forest tradition that participating schools and agencies look forward to each year. This year, more than 550 Wake Forest volunteers are welcoming the children for games, crafts and trick-or-treating.

Children of faculty and staff are welcome to attend.
