The Great Pumpkin Contest #FXBGpumpkin

We have just launched the First Annual Great Pumpkin Contest! We are excited to be working with The Boys and Girls Club of Fredericksburg, The Fredericksburg Police Department, The Fredericksburg Beard Coalition and awesome downtown merchants for a little fun downtown!

What is it?

The Great Pumpkin is a fun online contest to support The Boys and Girls Club of Fredericksburg. While a donation isn’t required to participate, we ask that everyone make a $2.00 donation either in the store or on our site here. We will have a donation box at the shop and information about The Boys and Girls Club.

It is social media based, so you simply have to take a picture of yourself WITH your pumpkin (only pumpkins WITH their people will be entered in the contest so we know that you actually made it!) and share it on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with #FXBGpumpkin. You MUST tag the picture to be IN the contest.

For Who?

The Great Pumpkin Contest #FXBGpumpkin is open to everyone! Since it’s social media based, anyone can enter, but for the PRIZES, you probably want to be local to the Fredericksburg and surrounding area.

You said prizes?

We will have paints available so kids can enter the contest before heading out to Trick of Treat!

We hope everyone joins in and spread the word!
