Due to the limited number of floats and space, pre-carved pumpkins will only be accepted at the two designated drop off locations between 3:30 pm and 5:15 pm or until the flotilla reaches capacity.
Members: pre-register before October, 24 to secure your pumpkin's spot on the flotilla!
Pumpkins must be pre-carved with top.
Weight: approximately 8 pounds after carved; mini pumpkins will not be accepted. Pumpkins should be no bigger than the size of a soccer ball. Entries should contain no artificial materials, such as paint, glitter, marker, food dye, paper, plastic. This is to protect the ecological health of the Harlem Meer should your pumpkin decide to go for a swim!
Unfortunately, pumpkins that participate in the flotilla will not be returned.
