The M.S. Pumpkin Derby is a family friendly event at Louisville Slugger Field to help raise awareness about the disease Multiple Sclerosis.
The highlight of the event is the Pumpkin Derby, a unique side-by-side race featuring handcrafted, decorated pumpkin racers in a fun, silly, suspenseful, and dramatic display of American creativity.
Pumpkin racers battle head-to-head for the coveted M.S. Pumpkin Derby Grand Championship Trophy in each of the four divisions.
It is only $25 to enter a racer and you get a free t-shirt and Fun Zone Wristband with your entry. A single $5 wristband will give you access to one turn at all of the Fun Zone activities.
The Kids' Fun Zone has an inflatable from Kazoing, crafts, face painting, concessions, pumpkin bowling, Plinko and other fun, family-friendly activities. Also enjoy the pumpkin decorating contest called the Showcase of Pumpkins (for racers and non-racers).
Prizes will be awarded in many categories including: Most Creative, Best Sports Theme, Best Racecar, Most Fun Spirited, Cutest, Scariest, Funniest, Best Cartoon Design, Best Carved Pumpkin, Best Animal Design and Best of Show.
FREE admission into the competition. So recycle those Halloween jack-o-lanterns and join in.
