Cancellation Policy: it is extremely unlikely that we would ever cancel an event, however, we reserve the right to cancel if the weather presents severe or dangerous conditions to guests. Heavy rain and cold temperatures would NOT be cause for cancellation. Cancellation decisions will typically not be made until the day of the event by 4pm. If we have not cancelled the event and you chose not to attend at your designated time, then you will forfeit your ticket. In the event of a cancellation, we will email all ticketed guests, as well as post to our website, Facebook, and Twitter. If you do not see an obvious cancellation post on any of these avenues, then we have NOT canceled. 

Refund Policy:  As this is a fundraiser for New Hanover County 4-H, refunds will only be issued if the grounds are required to be closed due to dangerous weather conditions.


Pumpkins not picked up by 5 pm, Sunday, October 16, will be composted. 

If you want your pumpkin back, please come early!

We are not responsible if your pumpkin is so good that someone else decides they want it.
