This year's Project Pumpkin will be held Saturday, Oct. 31 from 3 to 5 p.m., at Bulldog Stadium. Attendees are required to pre-register for the event, and safety protocols will be in effect.

Children of the Seward community and surrounding areas are invited to participate in the annual Project Pumpkin trick-or-treat event Saturday, Oct. 31, from 3 to 5 p.m., at Bulldog Stadium.

The event, approved by Four Corners Health Department, has been modified to include public health safety protocols to help keep students and attendees as safe as possible. Concordia students will hand out candy to children and their families at physically-distanced stations located around the stadium’s track. Attendees are required to pre-register for the event and select a specific time slot.

“Project Pumpkin has been a well-loved tradition for Concordia students and the community for decades,” said Rebekah Freed, director of student life. “I have memories of it from when I was a student and always love seeing the joy kids have as we get to partner with the community in this way. Our students treasure this event as well and many were worried that we may not be able to have it this year due to the pandemic. Thanks to their creativity and willingness to be flexible, we are excited to provide a fun and safe outdoor version of Project Pumpkin for our community.”
