OAK HILL — The Oak Hill Area Chamber of Commerce will once again host its annual “Pumpkin Walk” event in October.
The event is slated for Saturday, Oct. 16, at Central Memorial Park in Oak Hill. There will be free apple cider and cookies available starting at 7 p.m. The lighted pumpkin walk will begin at 7:30 p.m.

Participants must carve their pumpkins then bring them to Central Memorial Park between 5-6:30 p.m. on Oct. 16. The Chamber will place all pumpkins around the park, insert candles and light up all the pumpkins at 7:30 p.m. that evening. Participants should take their pumpkin home at the end of the event.
Children who participate will have a chance to win a prize in five categories: Best Carved Pumpkin, Best Painted Pumpkin, Scariest Pumpkin, Funniest Pumpkin and Best of Show Pumpkin. There will also be one prize for the best-carved pumpkin by an adult.
