October is a great time for a shopping visit to North Conway, foliage is peaking and pumpkin people are popping up everywhere! Pumpkin People? Pumpkin People!
For 32 years now, the Jackson Area Chamber of Commerce has hosted its Return of the Pumpkin People Contest. Businesses all around create displays that have a theme of some sort and each character must have a real pumpkin head to qualify for the contest.
The official Settlers Green Pumpkin People for the Jackson Area Chamber of Commerce Pumpkin People are located at New Balance at Settlers Green and EMS at Settlers Crossing. These are eligible for voting in the Jackson Pumpkin People Contest. Click here for the Return of the Pumpkin People Map.
Beyond that, you can find 20 displays throughout Settlers Green competing in our 3rd Annual Pumpkin People Decorating Challenge. These displays are competing in a competition amongst each other for a $500 Prize, officially judged on Saturday, October 1. But, we have a People's Choice Vote this year, and that will go on through October 15.
