WORCESTER - The Worcester Red Sox are hosting the work of local pumpkin decorators at the Polar Park Pumpkin Patch, beneath the left field video board inside the Park.

Starting on Saturday, October 9, at 10 AM, pumpkin artists are welcome to bring decorated pumpkins to the ballpark. Those who wish to participate are encouraged to decorate their gourds in baseball style, including Polar Park, the WooSox, and mascots Smiley Ball and Woofster the WonderDog. Fans who decorate their pumpkins in tribute to the Major League Baseball team that wins the World Series will receive special prizes Awards for winners in other categories will also be presented.

Fans can bring their pumpkins throughout October. Award to winners will be presented at “Trick or Treat at Polar Park” on Sunday, October 31, starting at 5 PM.

At twilight on Halloween, the WooSox will provide prizes for every pumpkin entry, scaled in coolness depending on the artistry, how early in postseason the pumpkin is delivered, and how far the chosen team advances.  Sunset on Halloween is scheduled for 5:42 p.m.

Fans can drop off their works of orange art at the WooSox Team Store at Gate D on Madison Street starting at 10 a.m. this Saturday. Each day thereafter, WooSox Ambassadors, who conduct daily tours of the ballpark, will place the pumpkins on “The 8th Hill” beneath the left-field video board.
