Ready … Set … Roll!

Cheer on your pumpkin in the Great Pumpkin Races, presented by Dominach’s Taekwondo Academy and A-1 Enterprise, on Saturday, Oct. 27 at Middleton-Mills Park (3415 Mills Road, Covington).

Bring fast pumpkins (no altered pumpkins, other than painting, please!) for an afternoon of racing fun against other pumpkins in your candidate’s weight class — up to five pounds for Wannabe Great Pumpkins, five to 10 pounds for Couldbe Great Pumpkins, and over 10 pounds for Great Pumpkins. Register between 12 and 12:45 p.m., then visit with Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden’s own Kate Hammer — she’s bringing along some of the Zoo’s creepiest creatures for a Halloween show-and-tell. Call the Kenton County Parks & Recreation Department for more details at 859-525-PLAY (7529) or visit
