COVID-19 isn’t scaring away this Bainbridge Island tradition as the 27th Annual Pumpkin Walk continues at Bainbridge Gardens, 9415 NE Miller Road.

This year, the Trail of Pumpkins will be open for all of October, decorated with hundreds of painted pumpkins and family friendly Halloween scenes.

Pumpkin Walk will be held during daytime business hours Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The “Great Pumpkin” will be there, but guests will need to take their own photos in the “reduced contact” setting.

The bounce house, food, live music and other activities are postponed until 2021.

You can participate by painting a pumpkin and placing it on the trail anytime during the month.

You can dress up in a Halloween costume and take photos along the trail or participate virtually and share photos on Instagram at #PumpkinWalk2020.

The community is asked to donate to the Bainbridge Island Boys and Girls Club, which has been the beneficiary of the Pumpkin Walk for years and has remained open during COVID-19 restrictions, giving families of essential workers a safe place for their kids.
