Show off your Pumpkin Decorating/Carving Skills!!
The Dell Rapids Chamber of Commerce and Big Sioux Media want you to show off your pumpkin decorating or carving skills! We are putting together a contest for the best painted and carved pumpkin this year. There will be two different categories: Painted/Decorated and Carved. We’ll have a first and second place winners in each category. First place in each category will win a package worth approximately $100, and second place in each category will win a prize worth approximately $50. Prizes will be from local businesses in Dell Rapids.
