PumpkinMania Display At Transylvania University

As many as 500 jack-o’-lanterns made for a spooky PumpkinMania display Monday night on the steps of historic Old Morrison on the campus of Transylvania University in Lexington.

A lighting ceremony was held to go along with trick-or-treating for the children on campus.

The event was a collaboration between the university and community.

Transylvania invited local school children to take part in a pumpkin carving contest and display them with an estimated 300 jack-o’-lanterns carved by the university students.  

All the pumpkins carved by the Transylvania students were grown on a Garrard County farm.

The general public was also invited to display carved pumpkins.
