The first annual Jack-O-Lanterns on 5th Pumpkin Festival was held on Oct 24th this year at the 5th Street Public Market in Eugene. This was a fun family event with areas set up for kids to have fun carving pumpkins, and with a huge number of pumpkins and other decorations on display. Costume contests were also held.
The event was also a fundraiser for ShelterCare, a non-profit agency that helps homeless families.
