Wakarusa Pumpkin Tree for Halloween

Wakarusa Pumpkin Tree - Gather Around for Halloween 2


The traditional Pumpkin Tree in the Wakarusa town square is the perfect place for your family Halloween celebration.  Take some photos by the pumpkin tree and enjoy the fall colors on the other trees.

Then walk a few steps to pick up some of your favorite old fashioned candy – and some of the newest candy fads –  at the Wakarusa Dime Store, or a fall drink from The Garage, the local coffee shop.
