Valley Plaza was full of eager kids, football players and parents yesterday afternoon at the first-ever Mayor's Pumpkin Carving Event.
Over one hundred pumpkins were carved in the spirit of Halloween and countless smiles shared.
"It has been fabulous, kids are so much fun, and we have had a mix of adults and kids. It has been amazing," explained Mayor Heather Colberg. "I just thought it would be fun to get the community to come together for some kind of fall event. It was short notice, but it has come together really well."
The event was hosted by the businesses in the Valley Plaza, and everyone came out to support.
"I think it is fabulous, it is great to get people out and it is an awesome turnout. She has some great ideas, Heather does," explained Manager of the Drumheller Scotiabank, Joanne Contenti, who was handing out the popcorn for the pumpkin carvers and their parents.
The mess of pumpkin fillings and intricate carving will all be worth it tomorrow night across the street.
"They (pumpkins) are all going over to Munchie Park and then tomorrow night we will go light them all and have them lit tomorrow night. I think it should really look cool," concluded Colberg.
