PumpkinMania 2020 goes online!


Transylvania University’s PumpkinMania, a fall festival and pumpkin-carving event and display, is going virtual in 2020 instead of happening in person. In its 10th year, the annual event will feature online activities — including an opportunity to share photos of your jack-o’-lanterns — with the larger community.

Transylvania’s 5th Annual Alumni Fall Festival is also moving online with two events open to the community — a coloring contest for students and the Transy Trot Virtual 5K, both hosted by the Transylvania University Young Alumni Council.

Virtual PumpkinMania

Instead of hosting a pumpkin carving event and filling the steps of historic Old Morrison with them, the community is invited to carve one at home and send a photo of it to PumpkinMania@transy.edu or post it to social media with #PumpkinMania so it can be added to a photo collage that will be shared on social media this Halloween. Those looking to have their carving skills on display can make a “Pumpkin Pledge” to donate their carved works to Lexington Parks and Recreation for the first-ever jack-o’-lantern trail at McConnell Springs.

5th Annual Alumni Fall Festival Coloring Contest

Students ages 5-12 can enter the Fall Festival coloring contest for the opportunity to win one of three prizes. Download the files to decorate from the PumpkinMania website, and email a copy of the final artwork to fallfestival@transy.edu by Oct. 21 to enter the contest.

Winners will be announced Oct. 25 and featured on the Transylvania Alumni social media accounts Oct. 26-30.

The Alumni Fall Festival coloring contest is sponsored by MCM CPAs and Advisors.
