You could sit around on Halloween and watch for the Great Pumpkin, like on Charlie Brown, or you could get your own great pumpkin for free. I mean, you should still watch the Charlie Brown special, too.

According to a report from Good Morning America, the prices on our favorite fall decorations are on the way up. With Halloween fast approaching, pumpkins used for jack-o'-lanterns and fall decor are up to $5.68 compared to $4.92 last year on average and may vary by location.

What Does Evansville Raptor Con Have to do With Free Pumpkins?

Quite simply, the Grishams love to be a part of fun family events that bring our community together. You might've seen them at the Showplace Cinemas premier of Jurassic World Dominion with their cool Jurassic Jeep, or in Mt. Vernon for Alexandrian Public Library's mini con.
