Get in the spirit of halloween this year by making your yard into part of the spooky story.

The Capitol Hill neighborhood is continuing the Capitol Hill Community Foundation’s (CHCF) newest Halloween tradition: the Literary Pumpkin Walk. This self-guided tour of book-themed pumpkins and scarecrows across the Capitol Hill neighborhood is a celebration of the season (and our favorite books!).

The week before Halloween, display a pumpkin, scarecrow, yard scene, or whatever, based on your choice of book or literary character.

Register your house by Monday, Oct. 24 to be include in the map and to be eligible for the voting as the most creative literary-themed display. Online voting begins Oct. 26 and ends Monday, Oct. 31 –see the map of entries here! The winning household gets to choose a Capitol Hill public or charter school to receive a $1,000 grant.

The Literary Pumpkin Walk is brought to you by CHCF. The Foundation is a 100% volunteer driven community organization that supports activities, projects, and groups that enrich the history, diversity, and beauty of the Capitol Hill community.

Normally CHCF raises funds for local schools through the Literary Feast. Since this event has been cancelled due to COVID, the Literary Pumpkin walk was born. Consider donating to the Capitol Hill Community Foundation. Your donations support grants to local schools.
