About the event

Not sure what to do with your pumpkins, gourds, or jack o’lanterns after Halloween? Drop them off at Trinity on Friday, Nov. 3 from 5-8 pm! Dirt Wain and Dick’s Organics will make sure the holiday decorations get composted and used for feeding livestock and enriching crops. Please note: painted pumpkins cannot be accepted for compost.

While you’re here, plan to tailgate and enjoy food from Bravas food truck, s’mores cooked over small bonfires (vegan options available), Piebaldshark Books, Allen County Department of Environmental Management, 260HAIRBUS (clipping will be collected and composted by Dirt Wain), Pumpkin Pie Eating contest, games for all ages, crafts for kids and more! It’s going to be a fall party, complete with a local DJ.
