Hannibal Parks & Rec ‘Pumpkins in the Park’ Winners Announced
A change of location didn’t keep people from enjoying Pumpkins in the Park Sunday, Oct. 28.
Originally planned for Nipper Park, the event was relocated to Central Park due to flood gates in downtown Hannibal.
The sixth annual Pumpkins in the Park was sponsored by Hannibal Parks & Recreation.
The Pirate Pride singers, a group of fourth and fifth graders from Eugene Field School, performed for the crowd, led by Teresa Paszkiet.
The prizes were donated by SC Data Center. Tom and Becky, portrayed by Katie Locke and Kason Bonvillian, helped distribute the prizes.
Here are the winners in the youth category:
• Spooky: Anna Martin, first; Coleton Hall, second; Andrew Clark, third
• Artistic: Camron Story, first; Serenity Haynes, second; Amara Coffey, third
• Silly: Tyler Clark, first; Carter Dickson, second; Chalin Martin, third
Here are the winners in the adult category:
• Spooky: Lisa Richardson, first; Alexis Elliott, second; Robert Crane, third
• Artistic: Lesley Hall, first; Stacey Martin, second; Andrea Altiser, third
• Silly: Stacey Martin, first; Josey Crane, second; Melissa Dowell, third
Pumpkins that weren’t retrieved by their owners after the contest are on display at City Hall until after Halloween.
