Pumpkin Palooza

Monday, October 5, 2020

To celebrate fall, the Mesquite Parks and Recreation Department has teamed up with local businesses to launch a citywide scavenger hunt called “Pumpkinpalooza.” The scavenger hunt competition will run through October 31. Each week on Saturday, a clue will be posted on the City’s Facebook page with hints to the location of one of the pumpkins. Participants will need to locate the pumpkin displays based on the clues, and then post a picture of themselves with the pumpkin to the Pumpkinpalooza event on the City’s Facebook page.
