About the Event

The community will once again have a little fun carving pumpkins for Greenfield’s fourth annual Jack-O-Lantern

Walk. We’ll collect the entries on Sunday, October 22 from noon until 5 pm at the Riley Gardens. We will then set up a fun and a bit spooky display throughout the gardens. 

You may preregister your carving online or enter at the door on the 22nd. Just bring your carved pumpkin to the Riley home on the 22nd between 12 pm and 5 pm in order to compete. Prizes will be awarded in different age categories. 

Guests may enjoy a hauntingly fun walk thru the garden of Jackolanterns nightly from 7 to 9 pm. Each night you may vote for your favorite pumpkin in Lizabuth Ann’s Kitchen. Refreshments will be available and Halloween art will decorate the walls. Come and join us!

Any accommodations needed for accessibility, please contact us at or 317.967.2461, at least two weeks prior to any visit.
