Settlers' Green Pumpkin People Decorating Challenge Call For Participants

Settlers' Green Outlet Village is joining the Jackson Area Chamber of Commerce in celebrating the 27th Annual Return of the Pumpkin People Contest, a self-guided, leaf-peeping tour throughout the Mt. Washington Valley.

Settlers' Green is calling to the community to join in on the spirit of autumn in the Mt. Washington Valley by entering the Settlers' Green Pumpkin People Decorating Challenge. We will have 20 designated "naked" Pumpkin People dispersed throughout our shopping center and we are asking our stores and the community to help dress them. These displays will all be a part of the official Settlers' Green Pumpkin People display that is judged in the Jackson Chamber's Return of the Pumpkin People Contest.

We welcome individuals from the community or local businesses, non-profit organization, and/or schools, as well as the stores at Settlers' Green to join in this friendly competition. Competitors can get as creative as they want in expressing the message of their non-profit, business or store, all that is required is that it falls under the theme of "Happy." The grand prize is $500 cash as well as runner-up prizes of $100 toward a company lunch at Brandli's Pizza as well as Black Cap Grille.

Register for free with Settlers' Green by Monday, September 15, 2014. Your "naked" Pumpkin People display includes a pre-made body and real pumpkin head, all you need is to bring it to life with clothes, stuffing and face paint! Decorating for the Settlers' Green Pumpkin People Challenge must be complete by September 26, 2014 at 4 p.m. The displays will be put to a vote during the Settlers' Green Fall Festival event on Saturday, September 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Winners will be announced on October 1. Displays will remain up and will be put to a vote in the official Return of the Pumpkin People Contest through October 31.
