Families are invited to enjoy the autumn magic of Halloween at Lumeria Maui’s Halloween Pumpkin Carving Contest! Residents and visitors, young and old, costumed and non-costumed, are invited to The Wooden Crate, Lumeria’s farm-to-table restaurant, on Saturday, October 28, from 2 to 4 p.m. for a traditional pumpkin carving.
The festivities begin with a welcome and light refreshments (locally sourced crudités, organic hummus, house made cupcakes, popcorn, lemonade, chilled black tea and water) served from 2 to 4 p.m.
Contestants will be provided with carving tools and a homegrown pumpkin from Kula Country Farms, and the carving begins at 2:30 p.m. At 3:30 p.m., it’s pumpkin knives down and the judges make their selection. Just one special pumpkin will win the Best of Show Award… will it be yours? The grand prize is lunch for a family of four at the Wooden Crate ($80 value).
