28th Annual Pumpkin Carve is October 28, 2016

Oct 28th, 2016 09:00 am to 09:00 pm

Pumpkin Carve began as a studio project 28 years ago and has now turned into one of the most celebrated events within the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture at Auburn University. This annual fundraising event is hosted by the Auburn Chapter of the American Institute of Architecture Students. AIAS invites all students within the university as well as alumni and community members of all ages to gather in the Dudley courtyard to carve pumpkins. Judges, invited from the local community and the college, select the best pumpkins and award prizes donated from local businesses.
