Carved Pumpkins Needed

The NEW Zoo needs YOU to carve pumpkins and help us decorate for this year’s North Shore Bank Zoo Boo event. Everyone who donates a carved pumpkin to the Zoo will receive a coupon for pizza, courtesy of Happy Joe’s Pizza & Ice Cream!

Pumpkins can be dropped off to the NEW Zoo’s main entrance building during regular business hours, currently 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., on Sundays through Thursdays, starting on Wednesday, October 7th. (Please do not bring pumpkins to the Zoo on Fridays & Saturdays! Any other day of the week is just fine.)  If you have a large donation that is too difficult to carry from the Zoo’s parking lot to the main entrance building, please contact us for more information on making that donation. You can email us at volunteer@newzooorg OR send a message to the NEW Zoo’s Facebook page.

We will miss seeing so many of you at our annual pumpkin carving event this year! We appreciate your support and thank you in advance for any carved pumpkins you’re able to decorate.

Carved pumpkins will be accepted by the NEW Zoo through October 29th.

Thanks to our pumpkin carving sponsor!
