Wakarusa Pumpkin Tree - a Fall Tradition


The 17 foot pumpkin tree in the center of downtown Wakarusa is a fall tradition.

There are a variety of food options in Wakarusa that afford a view of the tree.  Dine inside Cook’s Pizza or sit on the benches outside, or enjoy the ambiance from the outdoor tables at Shortstop Inn and the new Garage coffee shop.  Pick up some of your favorite old fashioned candy at the Wakarusa Dime Store.
