Bonnyville RCMP holding pumpkin carving contest

Kids with Halloween flair are encouraged to join in on the fun with the Bonnyville RCMP this week.

Starting Monday, the detachment is holding a pumpkin carving contest for the week for anyone under 17-years-old.

There will be two categories to win prizes in, one for the scariest pumpkin, and the other for the most unique.

Prizes will be handed out in a 12 and under category, and one for teens aged 13-17, to be decided on Nov. 2.

Bring your pumpkin to the Bonnyville RCMP detachment anytime until the contest ends Friday, from 8:00am-5:00pm.

The prizes include RCMP winter gear and other items.
