What better way to get rid of that old Jack O’ Lantern than to bring it to the Family Museum’s Great Pumpkin Drop! Bring your pumpkin before 10:50 AM on Saturday, November 4, and at 11:00 AM Family Museum staff will begin dropping pumpkins from the Great Hall balcony down to the floor. This messy presentation is over when there are no more pumpkins to drop.

This event is included with general admission and is free for Family Museum members. Admission is $8 for ages 2-59, $4 for one year old children, and $4 for seniors 60+. Children under one are free. For questions call (563) 344-4106 or visit www.familymuseum.org.
