Oct. 18, 2005: Cleaning out a pumpkin

COREY MCMAKEN | The Journal Gazette

Franke Park Elementary School student Gerardo Quintana cleans out a pumpkin for Fort Wayne Children's Zoo's Halloween event where thousands of decorated pumpkins would line pathways. 

The zoo is not hosting Wild Zoo Halloween this year, but there are some pumpkins on display and fall-themed animal enrichment, according to social media posts from the zoo.



We want to see the pumpkins you are carving this year! Send in a photo of your carved pumpkin, along with your name, city of residence and a brief description of what your carving is, and send it to Terri Richardson at for possible publication. Pumpkin photos need to be sent by Friday.
