My staff got the idea from a workshop (some Canada pool).
It was so much fun and easy!
We required registration ($5.00) per child, parents were free. Put the pumpkins in the pool (after a quick scrub), and the kids got 20 minutes to swim and bob for there choice pumpkin.
Age group 0-4 was our most popular!
We had the pumpkin donated by a local farmer.
We marked the pumpkin and gave away prizes (like free swims) to some of the participants.
We did three age groups 0-4, 5-7 and 8 and up for the older kids we put bigger pumpkins in.
