The Nauvoo Pumpkin walk started off 15 years ago with dozens of carved jack O lanterns lined along the street in downtown Nauvoo, Illinois. Over time the number of pumpkins increased and the number as did the volunteers. Today there is almost a thousand pumpkins each year together a full parade and a festival of food, candy and music.

Each year several thousands attend this unique event in Nauvoo, Illinois and the come from many miles around; some travel hours to enter their halloween decorated car in the parade. The towns people and business line the streets and give away candy & toys.
