Pumpkins. Help decorate Whitefish Bay’s iconic park with carved pumpkins during this festive, fall tradition! Beginning Saturday, October 23, drive up to our convenient, self-service pumpkin pick-up on North Idlewild Avenue. Choose your favorite pumpkin from the patch. Next, take your pumpkin home to carve, it’s time to be creative! Be sure to include a hole in the bottom, about 3-4 in diameter so it can be lit up. Then, starting Wednesday, October 27, bring your pumpkin back and we will display your creation for all to see! Carved or decorated pumpkins can be dropped off at the same North Idlewild Avenue location. Volunteers will be on-site nightly from 6-9pm to prepare the lighted display.


Enjoy music, food, and drinks nightly while you view the amazing pumpkins decorated and carved by your Whitefish Bay neighbors! Take a stroll through the ‘Frightfish Bay’ Halloween displays and check out the artistic giant-pumpkins carved by local master carvers:

– Melanie Ariens

– Suzanne LaFleur
