The fun continues with “The Great Pumpkin Race” on Saturday, October 2, on the Boardwalk. Build your own pumpkin race car to bring and compete in this wacky and zany side-by-side down-hill race. Plus, there will be lots of room to watch these exciting races with live play-by-play by the event announcer. Prizes will be awarded in each division, as well as for creativity. If you’re ready to start building your ghastly but spirited race car, download the complete event rules from ococean.com or specialeventpro.com.

You won't believe some of the things people come up with to make their pumpkins fast! Funny faces, wild wheels, crazy decorations! And not just the pumpkins! Even the pets come dressed for some Halloween treats. Fun for everyone to take part in or just to watch and root for your favorite "punkin".
