Calling all Halloween enthusiasts, artists, families, those looking to get out, and all ages to the Great Pumpkin Paint Out!
Downtown Brookings and the Brookings Arts Council are inviting you to get out your paints, a pumpkin, and your creativity for this contest.
Painting not your thing? We NEED your help to select the winners by exploring downtown and picking the best. Voting will begin on October 28th and end on Halloween night. Not only do the contest participants have a chance to win, but you do as well. By simply casting your vote, you’ll be entered in our Downtown Brookings gift card giveaway. We are all about the treats on Halloween! A map with the locations of the numbered pumpkins will be released on October 27th. There will be 2 colors – orange for our Goblin category (ages 12 and under) and green for our Ghouls category (ages 13 – 101). Pumpkins will be placed in windows facing out to the sidewalk to allow for all hours of enjoyment! Cast your vote online or inside the Party Depot.
Artists, grab any size pumpkin and jazzed it up in your best creative painting! The contest is split into 2 categories:
Goblins: ages 12 and under
Ghouls: ages 13 to 101
Deadline to enter is October 24, 2020. Creations can be dropped off at the Brookings Arts Council - please check their hours before heading over. 1st place for each category is $75 in gift cards to downtown businesses. 2nd place prize for each category is $25 in gift cards to downtown businesses. Bonus: each will receive bragging rights on November 3rd when we will announce the winners LIVE.
We hope to have you all join us in this GREAT event in downtown Brookings!
