For the past five years, Woody and I have made it a point not to miss the Pumpkin Trail event put on by the city. The first year we went was just for the kids to get ideas on different ways to carve their jack-o-lanterns for Halloween.

Once again, we'll continue a friendly little competition to see who can come up with (and carve) the best jack-o-lantern, and then donate them to be displayed at this years event.

If you have never attended the Pumpkin Trail, let me encourage you not to miss it this year. If you're like us and have attended in the past; why not add to the fun by making your own submissions.

The 6th annual Lubbock Pumpkin Trail runs from Thursday, October 16, thru Sunday, October 19. Pumpkin lighting will begin at 5:30 p.m. with the trail open for viewing from 6:00-9:00 p.m.Thursday and Sunday, 6:00-10:00 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
