Discover Monroe-West Monroe Annual MWM Pumpkin Decorating Contest

Discover Monroe-West Monroe will host its 2nd annual Monroe-West Monroe Pumpkin Decorating Contest during the month of October.

Participants are asked to decorate their pumpkin with a Monroe-West Monroe theme. They are encouraged to highlight the great things about Ouachita Parish. They may paint, carve, or decorate their pumpkin. A heron template is also available for download below.

There will be five divisions: Ages 0-6, 7-12, 13-17, 18 and older, and businesses/organizations. Winners will receive Monroe-West Monroe swag items and passes to local attractions. There will be a first and second place winner for each division.

Everyone who turns in a pumpkin will receive a small prize.

Participants can bring their pumpkin to the Discover Monroe-West Monroe Visitors Center located at 601 Constitution Drive in West Monroe starting October 3-24. Discover Monroe-West Monroe is open Monday - Friday 8 am - 5 pm. Winners will be announced October 26.

The pumpkins will be on display for viewing in the Visitors Center throughout the month of October. More information is available at 318.387.5691 or anunnelee@monroe-westmonroe.org.
