Peck of Winners Picked at Hannibal Pumpkins in the Park
The results are in, and half a dozen folks who showed off their pumpkin decorating skills won prizes in Hannibal Parks and Recreation's seventh annual Pumpkins in the Park competition.
The contest was held in Central Park in conjunction with the last day of the 2021 season for the Hannibal Farmer's Market.
The one stipulation was that there was no carving allowed. Otherwise, pumpkins could - and in most cases were - decorated with paint, glitters, markers and, in one case, even candy corn.
Judges were tasked with picking the scariest and most creative creation and the manager of the Farmer's Market even got into the act, handing out a prize for their favorite in both the adult and children's division.
Here are the winners:
Children's Division - Creative - Amy Coffey
Scary - Dallas Jurado
Manager's Choice - Arthur Jurado
Adult Division - Creative - Amara Coffey
Scary - Kameil Crane
Manager's Choice - Susan White
Prizes for the winners were donated by SC Contact Centers and the Hannibal Parks and Recreation Department.
