The Little Debbie store in Gentry will sponsor “The Great Pumpkin Decorating Contest” at the Oct. 14 Fall Festival at the city park, with awards and prizes for the top pumpkins. There will be three categories : best carved, best decorated and community favorite. First-place winners will receive a $25 prize, and second-place winners (in best carved and best decorated) will receive $15. Only one pumpkin per person in each category may be entered. Carved pumpkins may be embellished with other materials. Decorated pumpkins may have objects, paper or other materials pinned or glued to them. Drawing or painting on the decorated pumpkins is also allowed.
