JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL)– Charlie brown would be impressed with these pumpkins. Lake Ridge School in Johnson City is getting in the spirit of Halloween by hosting a book character pumpkin decorating contest.
Students were given the opportunity to submit a pumpkin that they had decorated in the likeness of a book character. The top three pumpkins’ owners received money vouchers for the school’s book fair– which will be held next semester.
The school’s media specialist, Maria LaBarbera, told us the kids’ enthusiasm is the best part of the contest, “It’s fun to watch their faces. It doesn’t matter if they win. It’s just that they’ve made such a good effort and other people have enjoyed what they’ve made “.
Lake Ridge School is actually hosting their annual fall festival in the school’s gymnasium. The event kicked off at 5 o’clock and will continue until 8 p.m. tonight.
