clue #1 – The Great Pumpkin is back in Walker taking a rest. If you find him first, we’ll call you the best. The pumpkin’s location won’t be found yet….but as always, you shouldn’t have to get wet.

Good Luck Finding the Great Pumpkin – Check back bright and early Monday morning for another Clue

Clue #2 –

It was a quiet weekend for the GP.  Where he was there wasn’t much going on or much to see.  As you search, you don’t have to be a jock….but you will have to walk.

Clue #3 –

For some people finding the Great Pumpkin is a mission, for others a family tradition.  To help you out, let’s talk about water.  You won’t get wet but if you see some you’re hotter.
