6th Annual Lee-Fendall House Halloween Pumpkin Hunt

Story + Photography by Catherine May Taylor

The Lee-Fendall House recently hosted its 6th annual Halloween Pumpkin Hunt, where dozens of families showed off their Halloween spirit in very creative costumes. The main event, led by Megan Ritter and her team, worked much like an Easter egg hunt, but with tiny toy pumpkins and black eggs rather than Easter eggs. One lucky guest picked up the pumpkin with a secret surprise inside.

After the pumpkin and egg hunt, guests gathered to show off their costumes in a parade around the grounds. The guest with the best costume also won a prize. Guests could also explore the museum and learn about the house’s history, while enjoying refreshments, crafts, stickers, spooky stories, and games.
