The city of Nauvoo is again coming alive in the Halloween Spirit hosting its annual Pumpkin Walk on Saturday, October 27, 2018.  This year’s event will again feature hundreds of hand-carved jack-o’-lanterns that will be lit and displayed along Mulholland Street.  Many of the Nauvoo merchants will operate on extended hours with specials, treats and entertainment throughout the day. The 2018 event organizers have made several logistical changes to the event in order to ease some of the traffic congestion of the event, along with better viewing of the show pumpkins.  A finalized map will be posted to our website as well as Facebook.
