PumpkinMania returns in 2021!

Transylvania University’s PumpkinMania presented by White, Greer & Maggard Orthodontics returns to downtown Lexington with a family-friendly pumpkin carving event Sunday, Oct. 24 and a jack-o’-lantern display each night from Oct. 25-28.

The return of PumpkinMania is made possible this year by the generous support of White, Greer & Maggard Orthodontics, Bluegrass Sotheby’s International Realty (Fred Copeland ’93, Barb Farrell ’84, Gwen Mathews ’88, Jimmy Turek ’99) and Commonwealth Credit Union.


The Transylvania and Lexington communities are invited to carve pumpkins Oct. 24 from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. All pumpkins and carving supplies will be provided.

Location

The carving will be in front of Transylvania’s Old Morrison administration building off Third Street.

COVID safety precautions

Under the current Healthy at Transy guidelines, masks are not required outdoors for individuals who are fully vaccinated and are expected for those who are not. In the event of inclement weather, the carving will be moved indoors and masks will be required for all in attendance regardless of their vaccination status. All campus visitors ages 12 and older are strongly encouraged to be fully vaccinated or to have received a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to arriving on campus.

The PumpkinMania display will be lit for four nights – rain or shine – Oct. 25-28, though unlike previous years, there will not be a separate event for lighting the pumpkins.
