Sponsored by First Federal Community Bank, the competition, a part of the Festival of Pumpkins at Bywaters Park, 301 S. Main St., begins at 11 a.m. with registration at 9 a.m. and ending 10 minutes before age division competition begins.
Infants through 3-year-olds will compete at 11:30 a.m. followed at 12:15 p.m. with children ages 4-7 and at 1 p.m. for those 8-12 years old.
