Pumpkin Races

October 20 | 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

The Pumpkin Races are coming!

Annual Pumpkin Races

for the Oswegoland Optimist Club.

The pumpkin race is a simple concept.

  • Take a pumpkin (carved or not),
  • Decorate it
  • Insert 2 independent axles through the pumpkin (we will be selling kits for $20 at Chalk the Walk during Oswego’s Fall Fox Fest
    October 1st)
  • Attach wheels
  • Race your pumpkin down a hill to victory!

Great family fun! Compete with your friends, neighbors, classmates and business competitors!

Winning racers will advance to the GRAND championship!

There will be two divisions:

  • Kids division (entry fee is 3 canned goods, which go to the Optimist Family Christmas Project),
  • Business Division/Adult Division (entry fee is $25, which also goes toward the Optimist Family Christmas Project).

Registration opens at 10am, and races begin at noon, at the corner of Main Street and Jackson in downtown Oswego, IL. Remember though…cheater pumpkins never prosper, and will be subject to public destruction!!!

Wear your costumes and trick or treat at downtown businesses throughout the event!!!!
