Pumpkins in the Park
Beloit Daily News - Jack-o'-lanterns light the way for new event - By Holly Johns
Community members are bringing a new illuminating event to downtown Beloit Saturday. Beloit's first ever “Pumpkins in the Park” will be held from 5:30-7 p.m. at Horace White Park.
Bill Dorr suggested the idea to help raise funds to beautify and sustain the park. About a decade ago, he had visited a small town named White Fish Bay where an older gentleman called “the pumpkin man” would carve pumpkins and display them in the park.
